In our efforts to broaden our outreach, one of our goals for 2008 is to upgrade our existing capabilities so that we operate at the level of a professional broadcasting studio. This project is already off and running: we have purchased state-of-the art video editing equipment, added new staff, and given the auditorium a face-lift.
As of January, all events that take place in the auditorium are captured on film and we are seeking out new distribution channels for both audio and video, from radio to YouTube.
