To provide better network service to the community, Access Sacramento – TV Channel 17 & 18, recently established the “Neighborhood News & Youth Media Task Force”.  The new Access Sacramento ad hoc committee of the Board of Directors held a meeting on 7/8/11 at the Coloma Community Center to brain-storm for recommendations and strategies to encourage the next generation involvement in media work.  This committee was formed by several board members, facilitated by Access Sacramento Executive Director Ron Cooper, and the NNB Project Chair Kindra Montgomery.
Cooper expressed the hope that gathering recommendations and suggestions on involving young people to participate in media network is key to the success of our NNB project.  He pointed out that journalists are not only being recognized, the press life is also very colorful.  We should encourage our youth to consider media work as a meaningful and profitable future career.
Cooper stated that Sacramento is recognized as the most diverse community, a strong media network enhances communication and promote a healthy lifestyle.  Access Sacramento has provided Sacramento residents community valuable information for over 25 years.  Over a-quarter-of-a-century of continuing improvement and enhancing its programs and content to better serve the community has brought its wide recognition today.
The Access Sacramento Board has recruited a new Chinese-decent member Mayue Carlson.  In addition to the mainstream community, its partners include many minority communities such as the Sam Pannell Community Center (African minority), Asian Resources (Asian Information Center), the Florin Creek Recreation Center (Southeast Asian), and La Familia (Latino).
