Job Location:

I’m sharing this opportunity at the request of Burlington’s Community and Economic Development Office (CEDO).  In past years, we have had a Champlain work study student film the Ward 6 Neighborhood Planning meetings, which take place the first Thursday of each month from 7-9PM. The meetings are aired on Channel 17.
CEDO is again in need of a filmer for the Ward 6 NPAs, and potentially other NPAs around Burlington.  The Ward 6 NPA meetings take place at the Greek Orthodox Church at 600 South Willard Street, and other NPAs meet in various locations around town, so a car or bike is helpful.  All meetings take place weekday evenings.
Do you know of any film/broadcast students who are interested in civic engagement/public meetings who might be interested in this role?  In addition to filming the NPA meetings, there is the potential of the following:
  • Training by Channel 17 on video basics, equipment use and video editing
  • Visibility to discussions and issues facing BTV
  • Potential for an expanded communications role with CEDO (ie. through a paid internship)
Here is last year’s job description (needs updating but gives you a sense of the role):
And here is CEDO’s job description, which has more detail:
Thanks for considering!
