IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PACIFICA AFFILIATE STATIONS
The interim Pacifica National Board invites you to nominate a person or persons to sit on the Pacifica National Board. Please help contribute to the future leadership of the Pacifica Foundation and help the foundation build forward-looking vision that includes the important perspective of our rapidly growing network of affiliated community radio stations.
Nominations must be submitted in writing and received by: February 15, 2004 Send Nominations to: Foundation Secretary, Carol Spooner. firstname.lastname@example.org The 20 newly elected Pacifica National Board of Directors (PNB) will hold its first meeting in March 2004. As their first order of business, the new directors (representing the five Pacifica listening areas) will elect two additional “affiliate directors.” Newly elected affiliate directors terms will begin immediately upon their election. The term is one year. “Affiliate“ board members hold the same responsibilities as other board members, as stated in the Pacifica Foundation’s bylaws.
According to the new Pacifica bylaws, any Pacifica Affiliated Radio Station will be qualified to nominate directors filling these “affiliate seats”. Qualifying affiliated stations must have a written affiliation agreement. Electronic form (email) is preferred. Stations may submit any number of nominees.
Any associations of affiliated stations formed by Pacifica affiliated stations can also make nominations for “affiliate seats”. For information on forming an association, see bylaws below. Associations may submit any number of nominees.
Pacifica is currently aware of one affiliate association being formed for the purpose of nominating PNB board members. If you wish to contact them for information, please contact Vicki Santa, WMNF, at email@example.com or 813-238-8001 x17.
