MACC Mission & History


MACC's mission is to serve the public interest through developing, overseeing, evaluating and promoting an area-wide cable communication system, and acting as a forum on communication issues and alternatives.


MACC was formed in 1980 under Oregon Statute 190. These statutes allow local governments to join together for a particular purpose, and to create an organization for administrative purposes. MACC is governed by a Board Of Commissioners, consisting of a representative from each of the 15 MACC jurisdictions.  Each jurisdiction is given one vote, regardless of its size
