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.
Our primary objective is to contact all communities in the state and raise their awareness of PEG in general and specifically notify them of our existence and willingness to help support and foster PEG access television. To this end, the NHCCM has surveyed all towns across the state and is currently sending information to each of them. It is our hope that membership in the NHCCM will be a valuable resource, especially to small communities with limited resources.
