PROFILE & MISSION
PMN was chartered in 1978 as one of four major regional public television networks to facilitate the full development of public television in the Rocky Mountain and Pacific states by providing regional instructional, cultural and enrichment sources for member stations, interconnection services, and other activities deemed to be in the members’ interests.
Recognizing the changing public television environment in the mid 1990’s, the PMN governing board and membership voted to revise the organization’s mission and to shift programming and training operations to the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA). PMN’s then transitioned from a traditional operating regional network to a non-profit educational foundation status with a new mission and bylaws. The focus and mission of the Pacific Mountain Network (PMN) is to employ its assets to advance the interests of member stations.
