SUBJECT: KTWU - FY 2006 Membership Fees.
KTWU pays PBS membership dues in two categories, each of which require Board approval. It was discussed and decided to provide the estimated costs to the Board as one item rather than to present each individually. This will also assist KTWU in taking advantage of discounts associated with paying each invoice prior to stipulated deadlines.
1. Member Service Assessment which includes:
a. Support of the National Program Service
b. Program administration and scheduling support
c. Promotion/Press/Advertising graphics support
d. Program Contracts/Rights support
e. Audience Research/Program data analysis
g. Engineering Development and DTV Planning Office
h. Station Relations Office
j. Learning Ventures
