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
