The ISRAELI Association of Communal Communication
The ISRAELI Association of Communal Communication was founded in 1994.
It represents thousands of volunteers that make up 250 groups that broadcast communal life all over ISRAEL.
The volunteers groups broadcast from EILAT in the south to KIRYAT SHMONA in the north of ISRAEL in cities, kibbutzim, , developmental towns, regional councils.
The local television serves all kinds of populations of all the ages: youth, pensioners, including populations that have special needs, new immigrants, Arabs etc.
Most groups have a common interest, like women, religious groups, new immigrants," green organizations" health organizations etc.
The local T.V. is a popular expressive tool based and protected by law, and reflects the social and cultural needs that the commercial television does not take interest and is not willing to invest in.
The local T.V. is accessible to people all over the country and is seen at the local cabels and the Israeli saterllite channels.
Our association is recognized by the Office of Communications and of the Council of broadcasts of cables and satellite, representing all the local association of the broadcasters in the country.
