NETA About Us - Board Members

Board of Directors

NETA is governed by a board of directors composed of the general manager or designee from each member licensee, an elected representative from each NETA Peer Learning Community (PLC), and one elected representative from the affiliate members. NETA's unique board structure gives each member's concerns an equal hearing. NETA's board represents over 80% of all public television stations.
