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)
Welcoming Remarks – Board Chair Chris Lenois
State of the Station Report – Executive Director Cor Trowbridge

Board officers: The Annual Members Meeting will be followed by the Annual Meeting of the Board of Directors, where board officers will be elected.
