WCTE Meetings

WCTE Upper Cumberland PBS is a not-for-profit public television station governed by a board of directors, known as The Upper Cumberland Broadcast Council. Meetings of the Board of Directors of the Upper Cumberland Broadcast Council, committees of the Board, and the Community Advisory Board are generally open to the public, although certain meetings, or portions of meetings, may be closed in order to address confidential or proprietary matters.

To meet our Board members, visit the Our People page.

UCBC and CAB will conduct scheduled meetings that are open to the public. Due to the pandemic, we will monitor and if necessary, schedule a virtual conference call. 

If you would like to attend, please contact for more info.
