The Community Television Association of Maine is a nonprofit membership organization that serves the interests of public access television operations across the state.
CTAM can be an important resource for any Maine community interested in developing a community television opportunity. CTAM offers at least four meetings a year with a formal workshop/training session as well as ample opportunity for informal exchanges of ideas and information.
Before CTAM was organized, there were no efficient means to "inventory" what kinds of community television Maine had to offer or which communities were working on franchising or re-franchising issues that affected their access provisions. Today, thanks to CTAM, we can identify dozens of P.E.G. access, local origination, leased access and nonprofit television operations statewide and dozens of professional, amateur, and volunteer staff members who are making it happen here in Maine.
Through our affiliation with the Maine Municipal Association, presentations at seminars for municipal officials, and through a constant exchange of ideas with members of the State Legislature, CTAM is working to educate our leaders about the benefits of local television and the importance of Media Education in their communities.
We also welcome that participation of our commercial and public broadcasting associates, the cable industry, and others who have an interest in community television. A non-voting membership is available for this purpose.
