Dublin Community Television (DCTV) is formally registered with the Registrar of Friendly Societies as a membership co-operative. Each member holds a (voting) share and collectively the members own and run the station. Every year audited accounts are filed and an AGM is held where all shareholders (members) elect a committee of management to run their station.
According to the Rules of the Co-operative, there is an annual membership fee which is currently set at:
Founding (once off): €200-€500
Members must support the aims of the co-operative and agree with the core principles of empowerment, diversity and participation. A good explanation of these can be found in our induction pack which gives some depth to aims and ethos of DCTV.
