NOTICE OF PNB TELECONFERENCE MEETING PNB Teleconference Sunday; January 20, 2008 10 pm Eastern Standard Time The purpose of the meeting is to consider business related to the following: - Delegate election related issues 30 min Attached below is the motion to be considered **************************************************************************** *************** MOTION ON PROPERLY CONSTITUTED LOCAL STATION BOARDS Whereas Pacifica's Legal Counsel, Dan Siegel, has determined that "the only way in which Pacifica can be in compliance with its bylaw requirements that a Local Station Board be comprised of 24 members and that it conduct business in accordance with Robert's Rules is to retain in office those LSB members whose terms are due to expire but whose successors have not been seated," and Whereas Mr. Siegel's legal opinion cites the following authorities: * Article 7, Section 1 of the Pacifica Bylaws, which states, "There shall be a standing committee of the Board of Directors for each Foundation radio station which shall be known as the Local Station Board ("LSB")." and * Article 7, Section 2 of the Pacifica Bylaws, which states, "Each LSB shall consist of the 24 Delegates elected by the Members for that radio station - 18 Listener-Sponsor Delegates and 6 Staff Delegates." and * Article 17 of the Pacifica Bylaws, which states, "The rules contained in Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, as amended from time to time, shall govern the Foundation in all cases where they are applicable and in which they are not inconsistent with these Bylaws or any special rules of order which the Foundation may adopt." and * Robert's Rules of Order, p. 170, l.6-7, which states, "Committee members are presumed to serve until their successors are appointed." Therefore be it resolved that: 1. The Pacifica National Board determines that in order to be properly constituted, a meeting of a Local Station Board or an assembly of Delegates must allow for the full participation of all 24 elected Delegates, including those who are serving until their successors have been seated pursuant to a certification of the most recent Delegate election. 2. The Pacifica National Board will only recognize actions, resolutions, and election results arrived at in the above-stated manner.
