The NHCCM grew out of a group of interested people from all over the state who had a need to help and support each other as they learned to manage their local access television. Informal, random meetings were held in various areas around the state. Eventually, a more structured group began to meet regularly and decided to become a non-profit organization and establish an affiliation with the New Hampshire Local Government Center (LGC), the National Alliance for Community Media (ACM) and the Alliance for Community Media – Northeast Region (ACM-NE). We have offered workshops in a variety of areas from re-franchising to lighting and more. Members also present workshops at numerous conferences around the state and New England.
