Vision 2020

There are many things that you love about WEFT. Me too. In order to keep those lovable traits and yet adapt to the new media and financial landscape of community radio we are uniting under the WEFT Vision 2020 -- a five year strategic plan that is developing at lightning speed, which is why the board has elected the Rapid Response Team.

Vision 2020 and the Rapid Repsonse Team faded away during 2016 and 2017. It is no longer an active project of WEFT

Rapid Response Team Members

The Rapid Response Team is made up of three members of WEFT's Board of Directors
