The Vermont PBS Community Council is an advisory board of Vermonters who help Vermont's statewide public television network respond to the needs of Vermonters. The members offer advice and make recommendations to staff and board of directors on programming and services, based on their assessment of their community's interests, values, challenges and priorities. They are active in their local communities, often hosting Vermont PBS events. For more information, contact Chuck Pizer, Vermont PBS's community engagement director, (802) 654-3688.
