Let us begin . . .
A visionary, friend, creator, and great human is gone. Let us share how one person can truly make a difference.
Dirk Koning was the founding director (1981) of the Community Media Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The CMC is a national model for integrated radio, television and Internet applications for community development purposes. Koning edited the national magazine, "Community Media Review" and was President of the Washington D.C. based Alliance for Communications Democracy. More than all of this, he transformed lives and through his ideas communities. He left us on February 10, 2005.
