Seeking Board Members


The TCMedia Board of Directors is now accepting applications from interested individuals to fill positions on the 2021 Board of Directors.

The Board is seeking candidates who understand the mission of Thurston Community Media, are willing to fully commit to participating by attending board and committee meetings, and have skills or experience that will help TCMedia grow and evolve. Willingness/experience with nonprofit fundraising efforts, background in finance or business, or former nonprofit board service is highly desirable.

Once appointed, Board members serve 2-year terms. Board participation requires an average time commitment of approximately 4 hours per month for Board and committee work. The Board meets monthly. Currently, the meeting day is the last Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. The day and time are subject to change depending on board member availability. Committee meetings are held between board meetings. Board members are volunteers and do not receive compensation. TCMedia is committed to creating an organization that includes and respects cultural, racial, ethnic, and sexual orientation and gender identity diversity. BIPOC and people of all sexual orientations and gender identities are encouraged to apply.

If you are interested in board service, please fill out an application and return it to Arne Morgan, Vice President/Nominating Committee Chair. Recruiting is ongoing. The nominating committee will begin reviewing applications on November 10, 2020.
