Members serve for a two year term. Meeting times and location will vary as meetings are called as needed.


The Napa Valley Television Board of Directors provides recommendations for opportunities for service; approves NVTV’s mission, vision, and reviews management’s performance in achieving it; annually assesses the needs of the community and approves strategies in relation to it; and reviews and approves the program’s financial structure and budget. Applicants should have an appreciation for the diverse needs of the community and innovative strategies to address them, and a collaborative and inclusive nature. The selected applicant will serve a two year term beginning April 2013 through April 2015. Meetings are held at 1600 Myrtle Avenue, the first Thursday of every other month from 5:15 pm – 6:30 pm.

The Senior Advisory Commission makes recommendations to the City Council on matters regarding services, facility use, and recreational activities at the Napa Senior Center and establishes short and long term program goals. The Commission consists of seven members.
