Announcement of Board Elections!

Sep 5, 2017

ANNOUNCEMENT OF BCM BOARD OF DIRECTORS ELECTION! 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 are actively seeking a board of directors that is a reflection of the community it serves. The BCM Board has a particular need for individuals with backgrounds in law, fundraising and 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.
