Advisory Committee Composition for Non-LSB Members of KPFK
[This motion was amended on 01/07/06]
That each Advisory Committee of the KPFK Local Station Board shall be Sponsors having become subscribers or volunteers by the regularly scheduled February LSB meeting.
Non-LSB member of KPFK who within the preceding 12-month period: (1) have contributed a minimum of $25 to any Foundation radio station, or such minimum amount as the Board of Directors may from time to time decide; or (2) have volunteered a minimum of three (3) hours of service to any Foundation radio station.
That each non-LSB member of KPFK must be affiliated with KPFK and eligible for appointment to an Advisory committee.
That once a bona fide non-LSB member of KPFK becomes a member of the committee, they are eligible to vote.
That an Advisory Committee member who has three consecutive, unexcused absences shall be removed as a committee member.
That the number of the Advisory Committee membership shall not be greater than but may be equal to, or less than, the number of LSB members on that committee.
That the number of non-LSB members of KPFK will be determined as follows:
At the February meeting of an LSB election year, a formal announcement will be made, marking the beginning of the period to apply for Advisory Committee participation during which outreach efforts and on air announcements will be made. The application period will end on April 1.
In an off-election year for the LSB, listener sponsor members of fully constituted committees shall have the opportunity continue to serve on a committee. In the event that adjustments in memberships are needed in order to fully populate a committee and achieve a balance between LSB members and listener sponsors, then the procedure defined for LSB election years will be followed.
At the April meeting of the LSB, any non-LSB members of KPFK who has submitted their application by the deadline will be eligible for committee participation and voting rights. By the April LSB meeting, when the Advisory Committee size is determined, non-LSB members of KPFK who have applied, shall be added to the committees up to the number of available seats (equal to, but not exceeding the number of LSB members).
However, no non-LSB members of KPFK shall be eligible to be seated on more than two committees. If there are more applicants than number of seats available, there will be a random drawing to fill the seats. Those already seated on a committee will be ineligible to be in that particular drawing.
The composition of the LSB Advisory Committees as of the April LSB meeting will constitute the LSB Advisory Committees membership until the regularly scheduled LSB meeting in February of the subsequent year.
For Advisory Committee meetings held between the February and April LSB meetings during off-election years, non-LSB members of KPFK membership will be determined by random drawing of those in attendance at each meeting. Their membership is limited to that meeting alone and cannot exceed the number of LSB members on the committee in attendance.
Non-LSB members of KPFK will be excluded from the Committees on Finance and Executive Review until non-LSB members of KPFK membership on those committees is considered by the Structure or Governance Committee. [This provision has expired.]
The application for non-LSB members of KPFK will include: contact information, a statement affirming that they are current non-LSB members of KPFK in good standing and a brief statement expressing their interest.
