Elizabeth Malone – Exec. Director, Northwest Access Television St. Albans, VT
ACM-NE Conferences are always invaluable to the NWATV staff. After months of dreaming up ideas and trying them out in the community, it’s always refreshing to connect with colleagues who share the same dreams and ambitions to build community through media. New ideas are hatched and old alliances are strengthened.
Ryan Scutt, Educational and Studio Production Coordinator, Catamount Access Television
“I am grateful for the opportunity to have attended the ACM-NE conference this year. It was a great way to connect with other Community Media professionals and to learn more about what others are experiencing and the exciting things happening in various communities throughout the region.”
Salley Gibney, GNAT-TV Producer
Thank you so much to the ACM-NE for awarding me the Rika Welsh Community Impact Award. I am very humbled by this Award. It has been an honor and a pleasure to be provided an opportunity to do what I love and to be a part of the GNAT-TV and ACM-NE community.
Steve Dunning, GNAT-TV Volunteer Producer “Mono”
Producing the television show “Mono” is a constant struggle made up of little victories and defeats. In the end, it’s nice to be honored, to be called “winner” by the Alliance.
