Join Our Board

Thurston Community Media is a 501c3 nonprofit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors. We have a couple of vacancies on our board and are looking for enthusiastic people who support our mission to help chart the course for our future. 

Currently, board members are asked to commit a minimum of 4 hours per month for board and committee work. Board members are not compensated and serve as volunteers.  Board meetings are held via Zoom on the 4th Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm.  Meeting days and times are subject to change based on the availability of board members. 

Board application and general information is available here.
