How to format proposed bylaws amendments

We request that proposed bylaws amendments be sent to secretary @ pacifica.org (close spaces to send email) as .doc files (not as .docx files) and include the following:
  1. A title for the proposed bylaws amendment;
  2. The existing bylaws language and its current citation(s);
  3. The proposed new bylaws language and (all) affected bylaws section(s), with changes made obvious by using strike-throughs, italics, capitalization or bold, etc.;
  4. A brief, clear rationale for the proposed change(s);
  5. The name of the proposer(s);
  6. Signatories to the proposed bylaws amendment.

How proposed bylaws amendments are approved

For most amendments to be approved, they must pass the Pacifica National Board by a majority of its membership, and then be passed by a majority of delegates at each of 3 of the 5 stations. Particular types of bylaws amendments also require approval by the members via written ballot, and some bylaws amendments may be approved directly by the members even if the boards do not approve them.
