Next Steps in the Pacifica Bylaws Amendment Approval Process
(First Ballot) Update as of June 2, 2016
Based on a motion passed by the Pacifica National Board on April 7, 2016, at its June 2, 2016 meeting, the PNB took up the four proposed bylaws amendments that had been noticed on April 17, 2016 and approved three of them.
The next step in the process is that the Delegates at each station will have until no later than July 31, 2016 to consider these three PNB-approved proposed bylaws amendments for approval (see OTHER INFORMATION below).

OTHER INFORMATION

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.

For more on amending the bylaws, see Article 17 of the Pacifica Bylaws, the most current version of which can be found at htttp://pacifica.org/indexed_bylaws/index.html
