Board of Directors

Our community TV is headed by a Board of Directors composed of six members.

Vice-President: Jacques Rochon
Treasurer: Jean-Louis Soulard
Secretary: Raymond Laplante
Administrators: Joyce Pigeon, Nicole Champoux, Raymonde Héroux

These volonteer members are also involved with the well being of the organization. Whether their involvement is production, animation, or bingo, we count on their dedication and support.

Our Team

For production, we have formed a very versatile and dynamic team which divides tasks according to each of their schedules. It consists of two employees and six volunteers.

The employees

Jocelyne Gagné, Coordinator, is a full-time employee for the community television. Director, cameraman and editor, also takes care of the necessary forms for various grant requests. Jocelyne Pigeon is a part-time employee who was hired to share the work of research and advertising. In absence of the Coordinator, she is trained to releive on her duties.

Volunteers

Volunteer facilitators speak both English and French, allowing at ease while reporting. They are often looking for new ways to improve shows or conduct interviews of local artists. Every week, their smiling faces are brought to you in front of cameras: Nancy Leblond, Lisa Morin and Chantal Marina Larouche.

Joyce Pigeon is the volunteer for the bingo from September to May.

The last person that must not be forgotten is the creator of our website. Jacques Rochon has done considerable research and spent many hours working hard behind the scenes for us, creating the site to be viewed all around the world. We want everyone to know how very important this is and a special thank you to him for a job well done allowing our viewers to be able to take part.
