Annual Meeting 2020

September 3, 2020

BCTV's Annual Members Meeting & Vlasta Farewell Party

There's plenty to say about the past year at BCTV, including getting 20,000 views on our Harris Hill Ski Jump livestreams and how the station remained relevant during a public health crisis while staff worked from home. But the focus of the event will be honoring a person who helped make literally everything happen at BCTV for the past 18 years - Vlasta Popelka, our Operations Manager, whose final moments at BCTV will be at this meeting!

When: Wednesday, September 16 from 6 - 7 PM
Where: Virtually via Zoom and Facebook Live
