Welcome and Overview of previous business for new comers:
Mission Statement: “To provide assistance to Community Producers of Public Access Channel 4, Springfield, IL.”
Our dues are $10 and must be paid by June 1st. Meetings are open to the public and when we get it set up the public may use our facilities and equipment to produce Access 4 shows, but you can not take part in the decision making process unless you are a member. It was said in our July meeting “Members have voting rights, ability to suggest Agenda items, ability to Nominate Officers, Ability to make comments during Full Group meetings, public can attend these meetings but will reserve comments until the end of the meetings.”
Amendment to the Bylaws was added at our July meeting. Every 3 years instead of 1 year Board Members vote on Officers positions, then new Officers appoint new Board Members.
There are 5 Board Member positions. It was mentioned at this Meeting that Archer Logan is now off the Board.
Answers to Questions for the Municiple Delegation (the Municiple Delegation was set up to Communicate the group’s questions, concerns, and comments to the City. These are answers to the questions asked at the last meeting.)
1. If a producer is running for political office he or she cannot air a show in the 60 days before the election if they are the host of the show.
2. Comcast is still taking out money. This money can be used for equipment but not personnel. So it is possible that the city could open up a studio with this money, but they would not be able to hire the necessary crew to run it.
3. There is no problem with running an hour long Access 4 Producers Group show. That would be great!
