Gratitude!!!

It would not have been possible for an unincorporated group of enthusiasts to run effective events without organisational help. Technorama gratefully acknowledges support from the Community Broadcasting Foundation, the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia, and the Community Media Training Organisation.  We are deeply indebted to the hosts of past Technorama events:  the South Australian Community Broadcasters Association Inc,  the Community Broadcasting Association of Victoria, and Artsound in Canberra. Without the backing of these people, we would not be where we are today.
