The Board serves on a volunteer, unpaid basis and oversees the activities and sets the policies of BevCam. We are an educational nonprofit corporation, membership-based. We are governed by a seven member Board of Directors. Membership is open to any resident, nonprofit organization, government agency or school in Beverly. We manage community access cable channels and facilities. We provide training, technical support and production equipment to the individuals and groups who utilize our services. We receive operating revenue through the cable television franchise, memberships, donations and underwriting contributions.

Our purpose is to help individuals and organizations develop programs and distribute information to the people of Beverly. We believe that community access media is an appropriate and powerful vehicle for promoting greater awareness and understanding of our community and the rich diversity of its people. We provide access to information about and archival recording of local issues, government activities and community events that may be unavailable from other sources.
