Board of Directors

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

President: Lisa Morin
Vice-President: Jacques Rochon
Treasurer: Jean-Louis Soulard
Secretary: Raymond Laplante
Administrators: Joyce Pigeon, Nicole Champoux, Raymonde Héroux and Chantal Marina Larouche

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.

The employees

Jocelyne Gagné, coordinator, works full time in community television. Her work is mainly focused on the creation of programs, including weekly news, on the research and production of bingo. She is assisted by Keith Bénard, a part-time employee who takes care of video and photo production, as well as most of the editing. He is also an occasional presenter.

Volunteers

The volunteer presenters speak both English and French, thus allowing more freedom of action for the reports. They often do research for news programs, artist interviews or variety shows. Every week we find their smiling faces in front of the cameras: Lisa Morin, Keith Bénard, Zacharie Lebel and occasionally, Chantal Marina Larouche and Josette McCann.
For bingo fans, it's Joyce Pigeon who makes winners from September to May. Raymonde Héroux is also present at each bingo, as is Raymond Laplante.
Permit and grant applications, as well as the treasury, are tasks carried out by our treasurer, Jean-Louis Soulard, with the help of our vice-president, Jacques Rochon. Raymond Laplante, for his part, takes care of the material maintenance of the studio.
Finally, we must not forget who is the creator of our website. Jacques Rochon has done a lot of research and spent an impressive number of hours working behind the scenes to carve out our little window on the world. It is very important that everyone knows that it is thanks to him that you are now reading this and that you know us!
