PHOTOS: BCAT's 2016 Annual Meeting & Appreciation Awards
By: Rich Hosford
We at BCAT held our 2016 Annual Meeting & Appreciation Awards ceremony at Heritage Park Baptist Church on Monday night.
A large crowd came out to support the volunteers up for awards, hear about the last year at BCAT and dine on food provided by a variety of Burlington restaurants.
Board President Brad Bond started the ceremony with an update on what’s new at BCAT. He told the audience about our new control room and studio camera setup that allows us to tape and broadcast all of our shows in high definition. He also talked about the upgrades to the van, which include a new paint job and a portable studio for field productions. He also made mention of our growing social media followers and the fact we are now on InstaGram (Bcattv) and we posted our first photo right from the stage.
