Annual Members Meeting 2019

August 26, 2019
BCTV's Annual Members Meeting - Let us hear from you!
 
While last year was marked by staff changes, this year has been a whirlwind of change at the federal and state level. Thanks to coverage by The Commons and the Brattleboro Reformer, the news about the FCC's threat to our funding has been widespread. We met as an organization in June and discussed plans to "Future-Proof" BCTV. In September, our Annual Meeting gives us another opportunity to discuss the future as we hold the election of board members and vote on member business.
 
When: Wednesday, September 18 from 6 - 7 PM
Where: Room 306, Brattleboro Municipal Center (third floor)
 
Agenda:
  • Welcoming Remarks - Board Chair Chris Lenois
  • State of the Station Report - Executive Director Cor Trowbridge
  • New promo video
  • Member Business
  • Member Comments & Questions
  • Election of Board members
 
If you can't attend, you can submit comments and questions on our Facebook Live video during the meeting.
 
Board elections: There is one open at-large seat for a three-year term. While we have a current member of the board who is running for re-election, all eligible candidates are welcome. Find the current board at http://www.brattleborotv.org/board
 
To vote: Individuals who were members as of August 19, 2019 may vote in in the board election. (Organizational Memberships are non-voting.) You can vote in person at the meeting or by e-ballot prior to the meeting.
 
As of 5 PM on September 6, the board nominations are closed. Please see the candidate statements below.
 
Board officers: The Annual Members Meeting will be followed by the Annual Meeting of the Board of Directors, where board officers will be elected.
 
Membership: As of 7/1/19, our membership fees changed to reflect the FCC's vote to reduce cable funding for community television stations. The fee structure and options are explained here:

Board Candidate Statement:

Alex Beck - running for re-election to a 3-year At-Large term:

Serving on the BCTV board has been a great privilege for the past three years, and I hope to continue serving, if elected. BCTV is an unique and powerful asset to our community, and embodies the values of education, transparency, and equity. As a staff member of the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation (BDCC), which often uses BCTV to cover our events and meetings, I know firsthand how valuable BCTV is in sharing the work of nonprofits with the community. I serve on the Windham-Windsor Housing Trust board, as well as the Community Engagement Lab board, and strive to support the entire Brattleboro and Windham County community through my service. My experience in community and economic development, my knowledge of the towns BCTV serves, and my passion for community engagement, position me to be a impactful contributor to BCTV's work and mission.
