They're most important job is handling the hiring of the heads of each of the Student Media, but they also offer feedback on operations, finances, improvements that need to be made, etc. Basically they're designed to be a student-based focus group of sorts helping keep things running smoothly

The catch is that you can't be a staff member of any of the Student Media, and you can't be in Student Government anywhere

Not really a focus group. Student media BoD is mostly heads of media corp's in Raleigh/Durham and a few student reps. Most of the time during meetings is spent discussing the reports sent in by the student media organizations (Technician, Nubian Message, Agromeck, etc). There's not a lot the BoD does regarding finances except listen to and read the budget info.
You vote for new student media editors etc in March.

If you're thinking of trying to get on the BoD, PLEASE let's get a student TV station up. They say it'll take 10yrs from the get-go... I say false, put money from other budgets into a TV station. We're the last college in NC to get one .


Go to the student media BoD site to see the minutes of the meetings: http://www.ncsu.edu/sma/board/boardcontact.htm @ the bottom of the page.
