CJNU is owned and operated by Nostalgia Broadcasting Cooperative Inc. (Nostalgia); a non-share issuing, not-for-profit, community service cooperative - incorporated in Manitoba under the Manitoba Cooperatives Act. A summary of The Cooperatives Act is available for download in PDF format. The full version of The Cooperatives Act can be viewed on the Government of Manitoba website. We report annually to the provincial government via the Companies Office.

Membership in Nostalgia costs $25 per year, and is open to all. There are three types of membership: individual, joint, or corporate. For each membership type there can be only one person designated to vote at any official meeting of the members. All votes carry the same weight.

Nostalgia is governed by a Board of Directors, elected each year by the members of the co-op, at the Annual General Meeting.

The Board holds the ultimate fiduciary responsibility for Nostalgia, and it is the Board, as a collective, that holds the CRTC issued licence for Nostalgia to legally operate CJNU as a community radio station.

Hiring of management staff for the organization is the responsibility of the Board, as is organizational policy and direction. Management, with the oversight of the Board, may hire and oversee other staff roles.

Staff, or committees of the Board, oversee the volunteer team that undertakes many of the day-to-day operations of CJNU.

In short: volunteers report to staff or Board committees; staff and committees report to the Board as a whole; and the Board is accountable to the membership of the Cooperative.

Board Committees are always chaired by a member of the Board. 

The organization abides by its by-laws, which were last revised and approved by the membership in 2021. A copy of the by-laws is available here.

Any changes to by-laws must be presented to the membership for review no later than 21 days before the Annual General Meeting.

Minutes of Board and Committee meetings are available to members of Nostalgia upon request. Please contact the Board Chair or Secretary.
