Subject: bylaws proposal
Let's assume that the network gets taken over again. How could we prevent negative changes to programming? Perhaps we could have a firm statement in the byaws mandating a certain # of hours of programming on these topics per year or week, and furthermore we could mandate that in order to change this bylaw, it would require unanimous agreement of all the LABs and of the National Board.
Here are the issues. The list could be lengthened or
Proposed Bylaw Wording:
Each member station shall devote at least 52 hours of programming a year to each of the issues listed above (for a total of 832 hours per year of required programming), and no program may count towards two of these issues.
Each member station shall be required to broadcast a report to the listener once per month
Each member station shall be required to devote one hour per week to discussion of internal Pacifica matters and local station matters.
From time to time (at least twice a year), the Pacifica National Board will be required to broadcast a 3-hour-long national radio show devoted to a discussion of internal Pacifica matters.
