Special Meeting
Sunday, December 16, 2007
5:00 PM ET
Agenda
The purpose of the meeting will be to interview candidates for the position of affiliate director. At the moment, we have six candidates for affiliate director. These are: John Murphy, General Manager at WHUS in Storrs, CT Ani Haines, Volunteer Coordinator at KBOO in Portland, OR Lori Taguma, General Mgr WOJB, Hayward WI Ryan Bruce, General Mgr. KXCI, Tucson AZ David Beaton, Program Director, WSLR LPFM, Sarasota FL Brian Sherman, WRFG, Atlanta GA An executive session to deal with confidential legal & personnel issues before the foundation will be convened following this meeting. Please note: It has been pointed out that when we previously did the affiliate candidate interviews via teleconference, the streaming of the interviews provided candidates interviewed later with the advantage of having heard the earlier interviews...i am therefore recommending that the interviews be recorded but not streamed live, and posted only after all interviews have been completed. Also, board members should be aware that the election of these two affiliate seats will be done via STV balloting via mail/email, assuming the board also adopts a special rule of order at its next public meeting permitting such balloting.

The purposes of meeting are: 1) Executive Director report 2) Finance Cmte report 3) Digital Distribution report 4) Affiliate Director election process and timeline 5) KPFA/UPSO recognition issue 6) Motion by Lisa Davis re: WBAI salary reductions 7) Wendy Schroell has given prior notice of intent to move the following: ------------------------------------------------------------------- Motion by Lisa Davis Whereas the PNB motion passed on September 29, 2007 concerning the WBAI budget included the following stipulations: a) Any salary cuts shall apply equally to all employees. b) Any salary cuts, staff cuts or restructuring at WBAI shall not be implemented without consulting the paid and unpaid staff and unions and shall be consistent with union contracts. and Whereas the WBAI Interim General Manager has reported to the WBAI Finance Committee that the salary reductions he has implemented exempt employees who have not received increases in the past two years, and that he has not consulted with the unpaid staff union on this matter, and Whereas AFTRA, the union representing the WBAI paid staff, has filed a grievance concerning those salary reductions, Therefore be it resolved, that the PNB requests that the Executive Director: 1. direct the WBAI Interim General Manager to comply with the PNB's Sept. 29 motion concerning a) the equal application of salary cuts to all employees and b) consultation with the unpaid staff union, and 2. fast-track the review of the AFTRA grievance on this issue with the intent to make any required salary adjustments before the next pay date, and 3. provide the PNB with a written report of the steps taken pursuant to this motion by November 28, 2007. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Motion by Wendy Schroell: Motion to rescind parts 3 and 4 of the PNB MOTION ON DISCRIMINATORY DELEGATE CANDIDATE STATEMENTS previously adopted by the PNB, which reads as follows: 1. The Pacifica National Board (PNB) declares that it is contrary to the Pacifica mission and the Foundation's policy forbidding discrimination, and shall not be allowed, for any Delegate candidate to use Pacifica resources to distribute discriminatory statements on the basis of race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability/disability, or age, as part of any written or oral election-related statements. 2. The PNB charges the Committee to Investigate Allegations of Racism and Sexism with developing recommendations to the PNB for a mechanism to administer and enforce the above-stated policy, and also supports the existing work of the Committee to develop a plan for anti-racism training throughout the network. 3. The PNB condemns the racist characterizations in the candidate statement of WBAI Delegate candidate Al bert So lomon, who has since been disqualified, as discriminatory against people of African ancestry and contrary to the Pacifica mission. 4. The PNB urges the National Election Supervisor to arrange that: a) an on-air statement noting Mr. Solomon's disqualification and summarizing this motion be aired on WBAI with the same frequency as the candidate carts; b) a mailing be sent to all WBAI members with the text of this motion and an explanatory note; c) the original candidate statement of Albert Solomon be restored to the Pacifica website so that all are clear on the offensiveness of his words, alongside the text of this motion; and d) the text of this motion be published prominently on the pacifica.org/elections webpage and on the webpage with the WBAI Listener Candidates. ------------------------------------------------- An executive session may follow the meeting to address confidential legal matters, if necessary.

Motion Re Elections Passed by Pacifica National Board Please note: In the Be It Resolved section of the motion, the first 3 were sent to the PNB Elections Committee and they are to report back to the full PNB with their recommendations 30 days after the motion passed (the motion passed on Thursday November 1). The last 3 were passed as is. Whereas the Pacifica National Board reaffirms its commitment to free and fair Local Station Board elections; Whereas the intent of the Pacifica National Board and the Pacifica Election Bylaws is to protect the right to equal access for all candidates; Whereas the right, process, procedures, cost or timeline to distribute a mailer to the entire membership of local signal areas has not been communicated to all candidates running for local station board elections; Whereas the spending of large sums of money in Pacifica campaigns runs counter to the noncommercial nature of the Pacifica Radio Network while underscoring the discriminatory nature of campaign financing so prevalent and objectionable in mainstream elections; Whereas the Pacifica National Board is deeply concerned about the resulting unequal access of individual candidates and/or slates that have the financial backing to pay for mailers to be sent to all local station members; Whereas allowing expensive mailers is discriminatory, in particular but not only to women and people of color who have the least resources as well as to those interested in running as independents; Whereas such mailers have been abused in at least one signal area and used as a fund-raiser for a private entity; Whereas there is a lack of protection of Pacifica of such abuse; including the abuse of employer and/or corporate money being used to cover the cost of such mailers that could lead Pacifica open to takeovers of Local Station Boards by those with financial backing; Be it resolved that the Pacifica National Board must do everything it can to get money out of its election process so that those most economically disadvantaged are not discouraged from participating in the process. Be it resolved that the Pacifica National Board form a Special Task Force including membership of the campaign reform sub committee of the PNB elections committee, to revise the election rules to assure that those most economically disadvantaged are not discouraged from participating in the process. Be it further resolved that the Pacifica National Board develops guidelines for the use of local station membership lists that are in accordance with State and Federal Law as well as the bylaws of Pacifica and that these guidelines must be in place 6 months prior to the next Local Station Board election; Be it further resolved that steps be taken immediately to remedy the unequal access that has occurred at KPFK and any other Pacifica station, including if needed the extension of the election period, and that these steps have minimal financial impact on KPFK or any other affected station. Be it further resolved that the Pacifica Elections Committee, the Pacifica Elections Supervisor with consultation with Pacifica’s legal counsel, the General Manager (or Interim General Manager), and the Pacifica Directors (a defacto remediation task force) from the impacted signal area develop a timely plan for remediation within one week of passage of this motion to be implemented immediately thereafter; Be it further resolved that the Pacifica Elections Supervisor will have the authority to rule on whether or not remediation measures proposed are acceptable and meet the concerns of the Pacifica Board as well as the legal obligations of Pacifica.

----- Resolution to Increase Annual Membership Fee (Terry Goodman) (Postponed from 5/24/07) Resolved, that the National Finance Committee recommends that the Pacifica National Board, pursuant to its authority under Article Three, Section 1(A) of the Foundation Bylaws, vote to adjust the minimum contribution for Listener-Sponsorship membership in the Foundation from $25 to $30 annually. ----- Resolution on Staffing Reductions (Goodman & Edwards-Tiekert) (Ruled for open session at 9/28/07 closed meeting) The NFC advises the National Board and national executives that it finds the Pacifica network's financial situation precarious, that the Pacifica National Office's budget is based on optimistic income assumptions in several local station budgets, that there is a significant probability the Pacifica National leadership will have to make significant expense reductions in multiple network divisions in the near future, and that they should plan accordingly. With due consideration of the financial and operational realities and governance challenges that have confronted the Foundation in recent years and are expected to continue, the PNB Finance Committee recommends PNB adoption of the following resolution. Whereas, the Pacifica Foundation is a non-profit corporation which depends for its survival and the fulfilment of its Mission primarily upon the donation of funds from Pacifica listeners and upon the voluntary contribution of labor from Pacifica's unpaid workers, And Whereas, the Pacifica Foundation's usable income has declined while its expenses have increased, seriously threatening its financial reserves, And Whereas, the employees at several Pacifica units have not been reduced in sufficient number to compensate for revenue shortfalls, Be It Resolved, that the Pacifica National Board gives specific authorization to its Executive Director to reduce the number of employees at any Pacifica unit and to effect such staffing reductions as he or she deems necessary for the financial health of the Foundation, pursuant to the normal authorities and responsibilities of a chief executive officer.

Special Meeting
Sunday, November 18, 2007
7:00 PM ET
Agenda
PLEASE NOTE: this public session has been rescheduled to 7 pm Eastern to allow the board to meeting in executive session for one hour concerning legal challenges to the foundation. --------------------------------------------- This meeting is a special meeting called for the sole purpose of dealing with urgent matters related to the conduct of delegate elections. Previously noticed motions by Robinson and by Schroell, along with any other time-sensitive motions related to the conduct of delegate elections will be considered. Motion by Robinson: "I am concerned that the process of overseeing and certifying the fairness of Pacifica’s delegate elections in compliance with the Bylaws has been politicized beyond repair. Accordingly, I move that the Foundation permit the CA State Mediation and Conciliation Service, the American Arbitration Association, the League of Women Voters, or other qualified nonpartisan organization to assume responsibility for certifying the fairness of the current elections process; and that, For future elections, one of the above organizations shall perform the role of national elections supervisor, to ensure that they are conducted fairly, in accordance with the bylaws and to provide for accountability. Further, that the interim Executive Director appoint a task force convened by and comprised of individuals experienced with elections processes, who are not current or past members of a Pacifica governing body or Pacifica employees. All members of this task force shall represent the PNB and the Foundation, rather than individual stations; further, the membership of the task force shall be reflective of the diversity that is the goal and policy of the Pacifica Foundation. The function of the task force shall be to make specific recommendations for the overhaul of our democratic elections processes, in order to restore their integrity and to fulfill the spirit of the Pacifica mission, namely: - recommending changes in the Pacifica bylaws and policies pertaining to delegate elections; - proposing a process, timeline and structure for promulgating clear and concise elections regulations; - making local station airwaves the medium for campaigning rather than privately-funded mailings to members; - promoting wider participation by membership in the democratic election process and in local station governance; and, - exploring an internet-based elections process, capable of simplifying the complexities and costs associated with these elections." Motion by Schroell: Motion to rescind parts 3 and 4 of the PNB MOTION ON DISCRIMINATORY DELEGATE CANDIDATE STATEMENTS previously adopted by the PNB, which read as follows: 1. The Pacifica National Board (PNB) declares that it is contrary to the Pacifica mission and the Foundation's policy forbidding discrimination, and shall not be allowed, for any Delegate candidate to use Pacifica resources to distribute discriminatory statements on the basis of race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability/disability, or age, as part of any written or oral election-related statements. 2. The PNB charges the Committee to Investigate Allegations of Racism and Sexism with developing recommendations to the PNB for a mechanism to administer and enforce the above-stated policy, and also supports the existing work of the Committee to develop a plan for anti-racism training throughout the network. 3. The PNB condemns the racist characterizations in the candidate statement of WBAI Delegate candidate Al bert S olomon, who has since been disqualified, as discriminatory against people of African ancestry and contrary to the Pacifica mission. 4. The PNB urges the National Election Supervisor to arrange that: a) an on-air statement noting Mr. Solomon's disqualification and summarizing this motion be aired on WBAI with the same frequency as the candidate carts; b) a mailing be sent to all WBAI members with the text of this motion and an explanatory note; c) the original candidate statement of Albert Solomon be restored to the Pacifica website so that all are clear on the offensiveness of his words, alongside the text of this motion; and d) the text of this motion be published prominently on the pacifica.org/elections webpage and on the webpage with the WBAI Listener Candidates.

----- MOTION regarding composition of work group on staff membership: Resolved, THAT the Elections Committee work group authorized on May 20, 2007 be convened within one week; and THAT staff members already on the EC volunteer on June 17, 2007 to attend a meeting of this work group within one week of the original meeting; and THAT in the event that any station is not represented by EC staff members, a public call shall be put out for as many staff representatives from each station as necessary to bring the complement up to two, to be selected by the respective LSBs, for the purpose of meeting with the PNB EC work group on staff membership; and THAT a designated member of the EC notify each of the members and proposed members of this work group of the date and time of the teleconference described above. ----- MOTION regarding teleconference phone systems: Whereas the cost of using the Foundation's teleconferencing system is higher than the cost of using a commercial conference calling (Internet based) system, and Whereas distributing the foundation's EC teleconference numbers to people invited to work groups who are not members of the PNB Elections Committee may jeopardize the confidentiality of the Foundation's call-in codes, therefore be it RESOLVED THAT work groups convened by the Elections Committee shall use a commercial Internet-based conference calling system, to be selected by the convenor, with numbers distributed to all members and invitees, rather than the Foundation's system for teleconference calling and codes.
