Join the Board


Berkeley Community Media (BCM) is seeking passionate people to join our Board of Directors. You don’t have to be an Oscar-winning filmmaker—we’re looking for a diversity of directors to share their professional expertise. We encourage diversity and actively seek to compose a board, which is a reflection of the community it serves.  The BCM Board has a particular need for individuals with backgrounds in law, fund development, capital development, human resources, grant writing, and community relations.

Serving on BCM's Board is a way to give back and help keep our centrally located, easily accessible, and low-cost professional production facilities and equipment accessible to the Bay Area. Board responsibilities include transparency, inclusivity, fundraising, and consensus orientation to actively participate in the planning and decision-making on behalf of BCM. The most important job of being a board member is steering BCM towards a sustainable future, while establishing and maintaining our mission.

Here is a timeline of the voting process and deadlines for submissions for all members:
