HCAT Producers Attend International Conference

by Don Cronin

Community media professionals from Holliston Cable Access Television recently attended the ACM (Alliance for Community Media) International Conference and Trade show held in the seaport district in Boston. The HCAT staff joined hundreds of other community media staff from around the nation and had an opportunity to network, share creative ideas and socialize with other PEG Access staff about various trends happening in the community media industry.

The two day conference offered an abundance of workshops including Youth Media, Virtual Reality tools, new technology for archiving media, how equity plays a role at Public Access centers just to name a few. The seminars are designed to enhance knowledge in the areas of programming, production, volunteer recruitment, technology and social media.

The staff is already looking forward to attending next year’s conference which takes place in Minneapolis, Minnesota. If you are interested in becoming active at the HCAT community TV station please call 508-429-8979 or email or visit us on the Web
