PACIFICA BYLAW AMENDMENT PROCESS – 2014

According to the vote of the Pacifica National Board on April 17, 2014, reconsidered on May 8, the following is the revised timeline for amendment of the Pacifica Bylaws (Note that the only change is a 1-day adjustment in the Notice Date.):

June 2: Proposed amendments will be posted to pacifica.org and daily on-air announcements will begin, continuing through July 17
July 17: PNB to vote on proposed amendments
July 18 – Sept. 15: Delegates (elected Local Station Board members) to vote on the proposed amendments that have been approved by the PNB

Amendments may be proposed by national boardmembers (Directors), by local station boards, or by a petition from station members themselves, and should be formatted to include:
  1. The existing bylaw language and its current location(s)
  2. The proposed new bylaw language and (all) affected section(s), with changes made obvious by using strikeSthroughs, italics, capitalization or bold, etc.
  3. A brief, clear rationale for the proposed change(s)
For most amendments to be approved, they must pass the 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 amendments also require approval by the members via written ballot, and some amendments may be approved directly by the members even if the boards disapprove of them.

For more on amending the bylaws, see Article 17 of the Pacifica Bylaws, the most current version of which, courtesy of Jack VanAken, are found at http://cosmicterror.net/bylaws/index.html
