Nominations for Media Factory Board Members Begin!

Nominate yourself or someone else and help steer our community media center.

What does the Media Factory board do?

The board oversees the operations of the Media Factory, our cable access channels, community radio station, and a growing list of media-related services. They develop policies for the organization, ensure responsible use of cable access funds, strategize about outreach and development efforts, and infuse community accountability and transparency into all that we do.

Meetings are held once a month with some additional committee work included in between meetings.

How is the Media Factory board different from the VCAM and RETN  boards?

The Media Factory board is the governing body of the now-merged VCAM and RETN organizations, with 2 member-elected positions and 9 appointed. In most ways, the board acts in the same manner with the same goals, just a new name.

The VCAM and RETN boards worked hard for several years bringing these two organizations together. Now as the Media Factory, new board members can help us move into a new phase as a community media center.

How many seats are open?

One director is elected from our community each year by registered members of the Media Factory to serve a two-year term.

Who is eligible for candidacy? 

In accordance with our by-laws, an eligible candidate is any member of the public who is 18 or older and is an active member of the Media Factory in good standing. Contact the Media Factory at 802-651-9692 or email  if you have questions about your membership.
