While the UFV Student Union Society made it possible for CiVL Radio volunteers and staff to attend the awards gala and conference, special thanks is due to the National Campus/Community Radio Association, without whom 101.7 FM would not be broadcasting the unique, local Fraser Valley programming content we continue to develop for our communities and campuses.
