Board of Directors

WTVP is governed by the Illinois Valley Public Telecommunications Corporation Board of Directors, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Meeting dates and minutes are posted below, meeting minutes are posted after they have been approved at the next regularly scheduled Board of Directors Meeting, except for closed meeting minutes.

Unless otherwise noted WTVP Board Meetings are held bi-monthly in the WTVP Studio at 4pm and the WTVP Executive Committee Meetings are held monthly  in the WTVP Executive Conference Room at 7:30am.

Open Meetings: WTVP Board Meetings, Board Committee Meetings, and Community Advisory Board (CAB) meetings are Open to the public. The federal Communications Act of 1934, 47 U.S.C. §396, et seq. (ACT) requires stations to allow anyone to attend any Open Meeting (or any portion of a meeting that is open) without requiring the person to register, or provide his or her name or other information. In the event such information is necessary to ensure a safe meeting environment, The Corporation for Public Broadcast (CPB) would not consider such a request a violation of the Act.

Closed Meetings:   The Act allows stations to hold Closed Meetings, or to close an Open Meeting, when discussing any of the following:

  • matters concerning individual employees;
  • proprietary information;
  • litigation and other matters requiring confidential advice of counsel;
  • commercial or financial information obtained from a person on a privileged or confidential basis; or
  • purchase of property or services, if the premature disclosure of the transaction would compromise the station’s business interests. §396(k)(4)

 

The Act requires stations to document and make available to the public the specific reason(s) for closing a meeting within a reasonable time after the meeting.

Community Broadcasting Advisory Council

The WTVP Community Broadcasting Advisory Council (CBAC) serves the Board of Trustees and WTVP staff in an advisory capacity, keeping WTVP attuned to community needs and bringing together a cross-section of people to advise the station on how those community needs can best be met. From young parents just getting started to people with the wisdom of years of experience, CBAC members' input is invaluable as we work to keep our viewing public entertained and informed.

In addition to reviewing WTVP programming and its goals and objectives, the Community Broadcasting Advisory Council serves as a sounding board and helps generate new ideas for local programming. The Council also solicits input and feedback to assure that the station is meeting educational and cultural needs and telling the stories of Peoria and the surrounding communities. Advisory Council members are station ambassadors and help promote WTVP projects and activities.

Federal 990 Reports

The IRS 990 is an informational tax form that most tax-exempt organizations must file annually. In a nutshell, the form gives the IRS an overview of the organization's activities, governance and detailed financial information. Form 990 also includes a section for the organization to outline its accomplishments in the previous year to justify maintaining its tax-exempt status. In collecting this information, the IRS wants to ensure that organizations continue to qualify for tax exemption after the status is granted.

WTVP EEO Reports

The FCC has Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) rules and policies for radio and TV broadcasters and multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs), such as cable TV and satellite TV operators. The rules prohibit discrimination in hiring on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin or gender by broadcasters and MVPDs. For MVPDs, the rules also prohibit discrimination in hiring on the basis of age. The EEO rules require broadcasters employing five or more full-time employees, and MVPDs employing six or more full-time employees, to maintain an EEO recruitment program. The recruitment rules include requirements to provide notice of job vacancies and to undertake additional outreach measures to all qualified job candidates, such as holding job fairs and establishing scholarship programs.
