Board of Directors

The WQED Multimedia Board of Directors is a volunteer group of people from the community who set the mission and strategic direction of WQED.

The Board is composed of no fewer than 20 and no more than 31 members, all of whom are elected at the Annual Meeting and represent the WQED viewing area.

The Board meets four times a year, with a combined meeting with the Community Advisory Board (CAB) at the annual meeting.

The Board has six standing committees which meet throughout the year:

  • Executive and Corporate Planning
  • Content and Community Engagement
  • Finance, Business and Operations
  • Audit
  • Governance
  • Development

All board and committee meetings of WQED are open to the public. They are held in the Hillman Conference Room at WQED, 4802 Fifth Avenue, Oakland.
