The Pacifica Restructuring Project proposes new Bylaws for the Pacifica Foundation. These are urgently needed to reform how our governance works - both for the survival of Pacifica, and to better fulfill the Pacifica mission.
The current Bylaws date from 2002-2003, with minor amendments since then, but have resulted in governance that struggles to function (five 24-person Local Station Boards and a 22-person Pacifica National Board). Meanwhile, listenership, membership, and donations have declined and debt is strangling the Foundation and our stations.
For more on why new Bylaws are needed and why this is so urgent and important, please read this Introduction
An Executive Summary of the completely new Bylaws being proposed is here: Executive Summary
Answers to Frequently Asked Questions are in the FAQs
For still more information, see this summary Comparison of the Current and New Bylaws.
