The people of County Mayo have a chance to share their views on the future of broadcasting in Ireland over the coming weeks by participating in a public consultation organised by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI ). The consultation is aimed at informing the BAI’s strategy statement for the next three years.
Under Section 29 of the Broadcasting Act 2009, the BAI is required to produce a statement of strategy every three years, reflecting the statutory functions of the Authority, the Contract Awards Committee, and the Compliance Committee. The new strategy will cover the period 2014 to 2016. In it, the BAI will set out its objectives for the next three years, and the manner in which it wants to engage with the public and with the broadcasting sector more generally.
The people of Mayo – and throughout Ireland – have from now until October 22 to make a submission on the draft strategy. Submissions can be made through the www.baifuture.ie website, by email to [email protected], or by post to: Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, 2 - 5 Warrington Place, Dublin 2.
