Hello everyone! I’m Jonathan Grabowski, the Executive Director at Marshfield Community Media.

I joined the MassAccess Board of Directors in 2018. I have been a member of MassAccess since I started in Community Media back in 2007. When I was presented with the opportunity to join the board, I decided to take it on because I wanted to give back to such a great organization and share my skill sets.

Prior to joining the MassAccess Board I had served two terms as President of the Marshfield Chamber of Commerce and up till 2020 served on the Legislative Affairs Committee for the South Shore Chamber Commerce so I felt I could bring my political advocacy background to the board.

I serve on the Governance Committee, the Events Committee where I chair the Fall Meet and Greet series and being the political wonk that I am, the Legislative Committee. I also recently took on the role of Clerk for the Board.
There are a lot of things I enjoy about being on the board. The first being the people; it’s been a real honor to work with the great people who are on the board and those who have stepped off since I started. We all have different experiences and opinions on matters but it’s always been respectful, collegial and always done with the best interest of Community Media and our members in mind.
Secondly I love the resources I’m able to tap into whether it be fellow board members or partners.

Finally, I enjoy working with the team to make our members and community media the best it can be. Whether it be someone taking something great away from a workshop or vendor at Spring Conference or Fall Meet and Greet, sharing a key piece of media on the MMX, raising their production game due to Creator or learning about legislation on a First Friday Call. As long as people continue to do that, we’re doing our job as a board.

My favorite MassAccess event is the Fall Meet and Greets and I promise it’s not because I chair them! I love going to other people’s facilities, networking and sharing things with my peers in a relaxed setting and meeting with our great vendors!

Outside of MassAccess and Marshfield Community Media I reside in Marshfield with my wife Vanessa and our Golden Retriever Moxie. I enjoy going to the beach (I live in Marshfield go figure),  cycling (which is a good counterbalance to my enjoyment of food and craft beer), golfing and sim racing. I also got into working with my hands over the past few years; during the pandemic I built a series of Farmer’s tables and benches.
