PRADO is a membership organization that provides a supportive environment for public radio development professionals. Through PRADO activities, newcomers are welcomed and oriented to public radio, members are recognized for their achievements, provided with mentoring and idea sharing opportunities, and have ongoing peer-to-peer communication with colleagues. The organization’s goal is to retain and advance the careers of those dedicated to public broadcasting development. The volunteer PRADO Board is elected by the membership.
