Dan Driscoll (President & Clerk) held a camera in his hands for the first time when he was ten years old.

Art Bergeron (Vice President) focuses on elder law as an attorney at Mirick O’Connell, a full-service firm in central Massachusetts.

At about the same time, he began doing local cable interview shows in several communities including Nantucket to acquaint seniors with the people and programs they should know about in order to age in place. Art firmly believes in NCTV’s importance as an anchor of discussion of new ideas and relevant information that benefits the island’s community.
