New Active Members, Board and Standing Committee members voted in., as per

KKFI Bylaws – Article VII – Active Members

Section 1. Active Membership shall be composed of qualified persons chosen in the manner provided herein below.

Section 2. Any person who wishes to become an Active Member must agree to contribute regular and reliable work to the corporation, and have read and agree to support our Mission and Philosophy Statements. Regular service is defined as performing a minimum number of hours, as determined by a majority vote of the Active Members each year at their annual meeting, of volunteer service to the corporation each month for a minimum of six months.

Section 3. Each volunteer who has submitted approved volunteer time sheets documenting regular service shall be a candidate for Active Membership, provided that such volunteer submits an application as follows: Any person interested in becoming an Active Member of the corporation shall submit an application in a form approved by the Active Membership to the Secretary of the corporation, declaring that he or she has fulfilled the criteria for Active Membership and is eligible for election to Active Membership as provided in this Article VII.

Section 4. Candidates for Active Membership shall be presented to the Active Members under sponsorship of two Active Members. Said candidates shall be approved for membership by a majority of the Active Members present at a duly constituted meeting. Such vote shall be based solely on the criteria for membership established by these Bylaws.

Section 10. The Active Members shall, at the annual meeting described in Article XII, Section 1, elect an Active Member to preside at their meetings. The person elected to preside over the Active Member meeting shall sit ex-officio to the Board, and shall have a vote on any question that comes before the Board. The election of an Active Member Chair shall be for a term of one year (a “full term” for this position), except in the case of special elections pursuant to Article IX, Section 9, in which case the term shall extend until the next regularly scheduled annual election (a “partial term”). No person shall be eligible for election as Active Member Chair for more than two consecutive full terms. However, a person may serve a partial term in the position prior to such elections as indicated above, and may again be elected to the position after vacating it for at least one full term. In the absence of the presiding Active Member at any Active Member meeting, the members attending shall select another person to preside over that same meeting. The Active Member Chair may be removed from office by a majority vote at any duly constituted Active Member meeting.

Section 11. Active Members shall not vote by proxy or by absentee ballot, nor shall they be entitled to accumulate votes in the election of any director. Each Active Member present at a duly constituted meeting shall be entitled to one vote on each matter submitted to a vote of the Active Members.

KKFI Annual Programmers Meeting
Apr 3 @ 6:00 pm – 6:30 pm

At the annual meeting, the two Programmers Representatives will be elected. Programmer Representatives serve a one-year term on the KKFI Board.

Article VI of the KKFI Bylaws defines who a Programmer is, to be qualified to vote for the two Programmer Representatives. Article VI reads as follows:

“Article VI – Programmers

Section 1. A Programmer is a person with regular and ongoing responsibility for presentation of a radio show aired on KKFI-FM and who contributes on a regular basis (or fill-in basis) to the content of a radio show, including but not limited to producers, engineers, announcers, and disc jockeys. Any person who wishes to become a Programmer must agree to contribute regular and reliable work to the corporation, and have read and agree to support our Mission and Philosophy Statements. Regular service is defined as performing a minimum number of hours, as recommended by the Programming Committee and approved by the Board, of volunteer service to the corporation each month for a minimum of six months.

Section 2. A Programmer shall have had the applicable training and have passed the applicable test for the position which the Programmer holds.

Section 3. Programmers shall be entitled to vote for the election of two Programmer Representatives to the Board as described in Article IX.”

The minimum number of hours that the Board has approved for Programmers is an average of 4 hours per month, over the past 12 months (April-March), of which at least 2 hours per month have to be non-show hours.

In summary, then, to be able to vote, a Programmer has to: (1) have regular and ongoing responsibility for presentation of a radio show aired on KKFI-FM, (2) have contributed on a regular basis (or fill-in basis) to the content of a radio show, (3) have at least 48 hours of volunteer service in the past 12 months of which at least 24 hours have to be non-show hours, and (4) have passed the applicable test for the position which the Programmer holds.

The Governance Committee provided the following guidance for people about whether or not they are qualified to vote: The Bylaws do not provide a separate definition for Programmer and Programmer Associate, at this time. Anyone who meets the requirements (1) through (3) and who has also passed the applicable test for their position, whether Programmer or Programmer Associate, is eligible to vote for the Programmer Representives. The Governance Committee recognizes that not everyone has turned in their hours (although everyone has been told all year that they are required to get their hours in). But since it is less than a month to the election, rather than require that everyone who wants to vote in the Programmer Representative election turn in their hours for the past 12 months before April 3 if they haven’t already done so, people will be able to certify at the annual meeting that they meet the hours requirement. People will also be asked to certify that they meet the other requirements, including the training/certification requirement. (Nevertheless, if you haven’t turned in your hours, KKFI asks that you turn in hours, at least from September on, to assist the station in gathering this information for grant-writing, marketing reasons and other station benefits. Also, to assist KKFI in dating its records, people will be asked to provide information about their certification/recertification.)

Programmer Representatives can serve two one-year terms. The current Programmer Representatives are Sharon Lockhart and LaDonna Sanders. Each was first elected for a one-year term as Programmer Representative in April 2016 and is eligible for re-election as Programmer Representative in 2017.
