Board of Directors

While BCM’s daily operations are guided by our faithful staff, we also have a Board of Directors that helps BCM fulfill its mission on a larger scale!

The Board of Directors meet monthly to serve BCM’s needs.  Board Meetings happen at BCM’s on the second Monday of every month at 6:30 pm!

The BCM Board of Directors consists of multiple elected members and three board-appointed officials. The term for elected members are two years. Appointed members serve a one-year term. Each board member must be a current BCM member, attend monthly board meetings, and participate in board committees. BCM members are welcome to attend board meetings for the Public Comment segment of the meeting.

The BCM Board is interested in hearing from potential board members from a wide range of interests and backgrounds.  A commitment to supporting community media and free speech is the most important requirement.  Community people with a background or interest in law, finance/business, media production and fundraising are especially welcomed.  Most of our board members live in Berkeley but there are a limited number of slots for non-Berkeley residents. We are actively recruiting board members.

Please contact Winston Burton at with information about yourself if you're interested.
