National Council

Members of the National Council of Aspen Public Radio share a common passion for public radio and all that it offers our community, the nation, and the world. In turn, the financial support of the National Council is crucial to Aspen Public Radio's continued relevance and public service.

Members of the National Council give an annual donation of at least $2,500 to Aspen Public Radio. Through their membership, these valued donors advance to a higher level of engagement with Aspen Public Radio, providing a more rewarding relationship for both the National Council members and the station. 

As the Valley's leading NPR member station, Aspen Public Radio is committed to bringing the best public radio programming to the Roaring Fork and Colorado River Valleys. Through the ongoing involvement of our National Council, Aspen Public Radio will continue to expand what it offers to the community. The National Council safeguards our ability to accomplish this fundamental goal.
