Board of Directors

2021 Board elections: Three At-Large seats are open for election. 

Candidates:

Lynn Barrett - running for re-election to a 3-year At-Large term after completing her fourth term, with one year off after three terms per BCTV's bylaws.
I am interested in serving on the board of Brattleboro Community Television. I very much enjoyed my previous service on the board and especially getting to know the staff and board members. I’ve had a 30-year career in public relations, publishing, marketing and television and continue this work to today. I was Director of Communications for CBS Sports. I also serve on the Inner Fire board, which is a proactive, healing community in Brookline, VT. And I serve as citizen’s commissioner for tourism at Windham Regional Commission, am president of the board of VIM/The Commons and editor in chief of Okemo Valley Magazine. I believe my background and experience, and history with BCTV, would make a valuable contribution to BCTV. I’m particularly interested in helping to explore new opportunities and community engagement for BCTV.

Bob Gammon - running for re-election to a 3-year At-Large term after serving one term.
I have just completed my first three-year term on the board at BCTV and I would like to serve another term. BCTV is a vital resource for this community and I enjoy participating on the board of directors. Some background history: I was the General Manager at The Auto Mall in Brattleboro for over 7 years and previous to that I was in the car business in all capacities for approximately 20+ years. I not only have a strong background in business but also in computers and technology. I currently am the Station Manager/Station Engineer for WTSA Radio and have partnered with Kelli Corbeil in running the Four Seasons Media Company. I have a strong sense of community and feel that WTSA and BCTV are similar in our missions to serve our communities. Like BCTV we are always looking to do more programming that directly benefits the people in our area at WTSA. I look forward to serving another term on the BCTV board and helping to service our area even better.

Leah Goodman - running for re-election to a 3-year At-Large term after serving one term.
As a lifelong print and broadcast journalist who's made a home in Brattleboro, Vermont, I am delighted to be nominated for one of the open seats on the BCTV board and to continue as your treasurer. I know our community has a lot of talented people in it and I am honored to be among the BCTV family. In recent years, I've been lucky enough to get to know and work with many of the current and former BCTV board members. I consider them colleagues, friends and wonderful neighbors. I look forward to learning, to sharing ideas and insights, and to undertaking initiatives that will allow BCTV to continue to broaden its impact and grow. Thanks so much for considering my candidacy.

BCTV Board of Directors Transparency Policy (adopted 12/17/14):

BCTV is a private non-profit corporation with a public mission. As such, the BCTV board is not subject to the Vermont Open Meeting law, but is guided by it. The Board strives for a high degree of transparency and accessibility, as follows:

  • The names of all board members are posted on our web site.
  • The dates, times and locations of all board meetings are announced on our website and on the public notice bulletin board at the Brattleboro town offices.
  • All board meetings are open to the public, and time is allocated on the agenda for public comments or questions. 
  • The board may need to go into executive session to discuss personnel matters, contractual matters, legal matters or other confidential topics. Executive sessions will only be entered into after a motion in open session stating the reason for the executive session. No motions will be made or voted upon during executive sessions. When the possibility of an executive is anticipated, it will be included in the notice of the meeting. No minutes will be taken during executive sessions.
  • As of 7/1/14, minutes of regular board meetings will be posted on the BCTV web site once they have been approved by the board. Minutes from past meetings are available at the BCTV Office upon request.
