BCA and BOP Chartered Student Organizations Approved to Merge 2014

Aloha!
 I am pleased to announce the the UH Manoa Chancellor has approved the merger of  the Broadcast Communication Authority and the Board of Publications Chartered Student Organizations. As of July 1st we will be known as the Student Media Board!
It has been a long process starting from a suggestion brought up at a strategic planning meeting in 2011. There have been many committed people who have dedicated countless hours seeing this through. It is a monumental day for these two organizations and I am proud to have been apart of this.
This first year will be a transitional learning process.We will be functioning as a single board while our fee structure remains the same; that will be our next project. We will also work on combining our technology efforts. Please keep your eyes open for those updates. Below is the signed memo to the chancellor with its appendices and one without. The appendices show all of the efforts and thought processes behind the merger effort. If you have any questions please feel free to email.
Thank you for your patience.

BCA members attend chartered student organization installment ceremony

BCA 2012!

With the semester back in full swing so is the BCA. After a great summer, we are ready for the new school year and all of its opportunities. This year we are happily welcoming back our returning Chair Alicia Partridge, as well as our wonderful BCA Advisor Chris Kirk-Kuwaye. We have newly elected Ryan McKinley as our Vice Chair and Roman Kalinowski as our Treasurer. Our remaining student members for the 2012-2013 academic year are Erin Padavich and Julia Dilts. Our board will also include UHProductions General Manager Joshua Huaracha, KTUH GM Joshua Mandelstam and our much appreciated community members Miles Takaaze and Duane Shimogawa. We have successfully kicked off the year and are pleased to have been represented at the Chartered Student Organization (CSO) Installation Ceremony on August 29th. 

We had a great evening mingling and celebrating with the other CSO leaders, we heard from inspirational keynote speakers about student involvement and most importantly we made a pledge to our fellow students. A highlight of the event for BCA was supporting the final speaker, our very own chairwoman Alicia Partridge, who left us with an encouraging and motivating word and dream of what we can do this year through our leadership.

We closed the evening as we each lit symbolic candles representing the importance of inclusion, empowerment, conviction, competence, perseverance, accountability, and stewardship in our positions. It was a great way to start the term and we look forward to sharing more exciting news this year!

Erin Lau wins top honors for her film

Former BCA Vice Chair Erin Lau won top honors at the 2012  Shanghai International Film Festival for the Best Documentary in the Sino-U.S. Student Shorts Program.  Her film “Ka Pua”  glances into the life of Elizabeth as her beauty is reflected through her sense of family and aloha.

Kudos to Erin from the Board!

Why the Working Group recommended one student media board

  • It will be better equipped to address technological innovation and integrative media in order to reflect a more “real-world” marketplace and learning environment for students
  •  It will be able to serve and promote shared goals among the programs by facilitating interaction and collaboration between the programs
  •  It will allow for greater sharing and leveraging of resources, including overall program finances, facilities, staff, and other human resources
  •  It will provide net benefits to the UHM campus by providing students increased learning opportunities and various experiences that will translate into greater benefits for the external community through the increased strength of its student media program

The Move to One Student Media Board

During the upcoming academic year,  representatives from the BCA and the Board of Publications (BOP), their programs, and their advisors will be meeting to give shape to a new entity — a single student media board.  This media board will oversee  KTUH and UHProductions as well as BOP’s  Ka Leo, the campus newspaper, and Hawaii Review, the campus literary magazine, as well as Ka Leo advertising.

At a BOP strategic planning meeting in January 2012, BOP members and guests from BCA and UHProductions, committed to moving forward to bring student-funded media programs under one board.

What followed this decision was the creation of a Working Group to research the best practices, nationwide, of single media boards.  From this information, the committee developed a list of pros and cons for creating a single board and then formulated recommendations about the feasibility and desirability of having one  board for UHM’s student-funded media programs.

The Working Group consulted internally by presenting recommendations to the BCA and BOP boards and then held an open public forum to share recommendations and gather feedback, particularly from the programs that would be impacted.   The programs’ main concerns were maintaining autonomy of the programs, especially in regard to programming decisions;  keeping separate  the revenue streams for each program; and ensuring the the new board would be fully informed about and supportive of the programs.

At their  final board meetings in Spring 2012, the BOP and the BCA approved the move toward the one media board.

2012-2013 GMs for KTUH and UHP

In April 2012, the BCA screening committee selected general managers for its two programs, KTUH and UHProductions.

KTUH GM Joshua Mandelstam has been a DJ and specialties director for the station for several years.  One of his goals for the station for the upcoming academic year is to increase awareness of the station among UHM students by having KTUH spin and broadcast at campus events.

UHProductions GM Joshua Huaracha (who is willing to be called Josh to help keep things straight) is back for a second term as GM.  Like the other Joshua, his goal for UHP is to expand its outreach to students by running training workshops on using film equipment and through on-campus events .

It looks as if it’s going to be a good year for BCA’s programs and UHM students.
