Tube City Community Media Inc. is looking for a few good men and women to serve on its board of directors.
Nominations are currently being accepted. Anyone may nominate someone, and you may nominate yourself. Nominations will be considered at the board's next meeting, scheduled for Aug. 2, and should be received by Aug. 1.
Nominees should be at least 18 years old, be able to pass a background check, and live within a nine-mile radius of McKeesport.
A nine-mile radius of McKeesport includes Swissvale, Forest Hills, Churchill, Wilkinsburg, Monroeville, Pitcairn, North Versailles, White Oak, parts of North Huntingdon (Markvue Manor, Circleville, Hartford Heights), Elizabeth, Greenock, Clairton, Glassport, Pleasant Hills, West Mifflin, Brentwood, Munhall, Whitaker and parts of Pittsburgh (including Lincoln Place, Glenwood, Hazelwood and Squirrel Hill). (See map here.)
Most importantly, they should have a sincere interest in local, non-profit media and in promoting the McKeesport area via the Internet, radio and other means. Previous experience is not necessary but is helpful.
The board has only one regular meeting per year, but board members are asked for advice and help as necessary.
If you would like to suggest someone else or nominate yourself, write to firstname.lastname@example.org, call (412) 614-9659, or write to Tube City Community Media Inc., P.O. Box 94, McKeesport 15134.
