Publications and Media Board vs. Publications and Media Center
The Publications and Media Center works hand-in-hand with the ASUC Chartered Program, the ASUC Publications and Media Board. The Board is part of the ASUC, while the Center is a University department.
The Board advises the Center about the student media community's needs and can vote to engage the Center to manage its resources, such as ASUC-provided space allocations and funding. In the 2017-2018 year, the Board engaged the Center to manage both its budget and it's ASUC-allocated spaces. The Center reports to the Board on how it is utilizing their resources in service to the student media community.

How the the Publications and Media Board is Governed
Every registered student media organization's primary contact in CalLink is their voting representative on the Publications and Media Board. A student media organization's primary contact is their representative on the Board.
The Board is led by an Executive Committee known as the Steering Committee. Three members of the Committee are elected by student media organizations' primary contacts, one member is chosen from among the Student Union Creative Progams student staff, and the ex-officio Chair of the committee is the Student Lead of the Publications and Media Center. The Steering Committee also comprises non-voting members, like the ASUC Executive Vice President, ASUC Chief Finanical Officer, and Student Union Creative Programs Coordinator. Elections for the at-large positions are held each spring. To learn more, read here
