Membership

Koori Radio is operated by Gadigal Information Service Aboriginal Corporation (GIS), an Aboriginal community owned and controlled arts & media organisation based in Redfern NSW. To get more involved with supporting the work of GIS and have a say in the future of the organisation, we offer financial membership. To become a "Full Member" with voting rights you must be of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent, be at least 18 years of age and reside within the Sydney Metropolitan area. There is also an annual fee, due by July 1 each year, to ensure membership for the financial year. The current annual fee, as set by the GIS Board is $20.

To apply to become a member of GIS, please complete and return your application with payment of $20.00. Your application will be considered at the next Governing Committee meeting. If approved, you will be notified in writing. If membership is denied, a refund will be provided.

If you are not of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent and wish to be a member we offer "FROG membership". FROG membership means Friends and Relatives of Gadigal. As a FROG member you do not receive voting rights but reap the benefits of supporting a deadly service, giving back to community and being informed and up-to date on the latest news. FROG membership is $15.00 per annum.
