LCTV board members Laurel Cooley and Susan Bickford will address Maine Media Women members and the public on the topic of community access television, community producers and services that organizations like LCTV provide Saturday morning, Sept. 11. Their talk will take place at the Lincoln County Television Media Center on Sheepscot Road. Doors will open 9:15 a.m. for coffee and networking with the program starting at 10 a.m.

LCTV Channel 7 broadcasts around the clock to cable households in 10 of Lincoln County’s 16 communities. The organization also offers free classes in field videography, editing and studio production to eligible individuals and local organization representatives.

Cooley, who coordinates LCTV public relations and activities, has worked as a writer and editor in the New York City publishing industry and for global corporations and national nonprofits. Bickford teaches visual and electronic art at the University of Maine at Augusta, with a focus on new media, incorporating projected video, for theater and stand-alone installation. She recently filmed and created a continuous projected backdrop, while actors performed “13,” a new musical, on stage at the New England Youth Theater in Brunswick.

Maine Media Women is a community of communications professionals who meet regularly to exchange ideas and information, and to offer mutual support and professional recognition. Guests are welcome.
