  • August 10 — September 24: On-air announcements about the proposed bylaws amendments posted to the pacifica.org website are to be broadcast on all five radio stations three times a day - twice between 6:00 AM and 11:00 PM local time and once between 11:00 PM and 6:00 AM.
  • Approved bylaws amendments: Based on the current bylaws, within 15 days of approval of any of the proposed bylaws amendments via the entire process (see "How proposed bylaws amendments are approved" below), those new bylaws amendments will be posted to the pacifica.org website and the bylaws themselves will be updated to include them.

    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 is here.
