Planning & Restructuring

As promised, we're going to fill you in about some of the topics that came up during our staff retreat last week.  We were very productive and many good ideas came out of the time we invested in this process.  The two items we want to share with you now involve consolidating editing stations on the first floor and a special event we're planning for the spring.

Some of you may have noticed that we've had to be more careful lately, about when we schedule producers to edit their shows, depending on what computer the files are on.  This is because we need to make sure that we have enough staff on both our first and third floors at any given time.  Fundraising Associate Philippe has also been splitting his attention between computers located upstairs and downstairs in order to get all of his work done.  To make things easier on everyone, we are working to move all of our editing computers, the DVD printer, the DVD duplicator, and related supplies into our first floor space.  This way, we will only need to provide staff upstairs when our TV studio is in use and editing slots should become easier to schedule.   We'll let you in on the details are as we get closer to actually implementing them.

We'll also keep you posted about our plan to host a fun production workshop for teens sometime this spring.  We came up with a framework for a two to three hour Saturday slot that will feature the group creating a talk or variety show and then watching it while they chow down on pizza.  It will be a chance for youth to learn various aspects of TV production in a way they can relate to and will provide an additional program for us to air on Cable Channel 15.

That's it for this week!  Remember to keep checking our blog each Friday for more information about what's going on behind the scenes around here.
