Nominations Open For Friends of WVPB Board of Directors

The nomination period for the Friends of West Virginia Public Broadcasting Board of Directors is open until 11:59 p.m. on April 17, 2020.

Every individual contribution gives supporters membership in the Friends of West Virginia Public Broadcasting, Inc., and entitles them to vote for members of its Board of Directors.

Our Friends Board of Directors serve as WVPB ambassadors to their communities and are elected to rotating terms annually to represent the communities of WVPB’s radio and television locations. Each director serves a three-year term, attends quarterly meetings, and acts as an ambassador on behalf of public broadcasting in their communities.

Director positions open include Beckley (1), Buckhannon (1), Charleston (2), Huntington (1), Martinsburg (1), Morgantown (2), Parkersburg (1) and Wheeling (1).

Quarterly meetings are the second Wednesday in September, December, March and June. All meetings begin at 12:30 p.m., at 600 Capitol Street, Charleston, W.Va., (unless otherwise stated) and are open to the public.

The board is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization that supports WVPB’s quality services in education, news and public affairs, emergency services and economic development. Board members solicit and manage membership donations on behalf of WVPB.
