As a volunteer programmer I understand and hereby pledge to respect and abide by the following:
1. To perform in a professional manner at all times when representing WGXC. This includes my behavior on-air, and when interacting with the public as a representative of WGXC.
2. To abide by the best practices and procedures outlined in Current Programmer Information at
3. To be responsible for the actions of all guests I invite into a WGXC studio or onto the WGXC airwaves, and to safeguard all Wave Farm equipment during my scheduled program. When broadcasting from a WGXC studio, I understand that I have the right to ask any person their name and purpose for being in the studios, and that only scheduled guests are allowed in WGXC studios, except during public hours. I have the right and obligation to ask someone to leave the studio if they have no legitimate reason for being on the premises.
4. That I have read and acknowledge WGXC’s Dispute Resolution Policy below as applicable to my service as a volunteer.
5. That volunteers are not employees of WGXC and/or Wave Farm, and should notify the Station Manager if at any point they no longer wish to volunteer at WGXC. Likewise, while WGXC appreciates the support and dedication of its volunteers, it has the discretion to dismiss volunteers at any time.
I understand that failure to adhere to this agreement could result in my suspension or termination from active WGXC Programmer status.
