I agree

I agree with everything you said. Very articulately. We will miss being on KBOO's "Tillicum Wawa" show because of some of the same issues. After alot of critism, we collectively decided to reitre. It was just too hard to put on a great show, do all the research, try to connect to the People , follow all FSS rules and do it in a warm "front room" type of discussions with each other and our listeners that called in to comment.
I will miss,  after 25 yrs of being on KBOO's Native American Programing, bringing you up to date information about our Native American world .,

    RE: Motions for the KBOO Board June 24, 2013 Meeting

    PREAMBLE

    Two motions are listed below within the context of KBOO as a participatory-members radio station. It is our belief that a critical mass of the current board also supports the importance of membership participation in the workings of KBOO. Top down governance, a corporate style station, with an Executive Director with total power contradicts both the by-laws and the strategic plan while at the same time alienating a large portion of the current membership. In addition, sanitizing programming to make KBOO more attractive to corporate and foundation grantors, thus moving towards less controversial and "confrontational" programing by more mainstream voices is also offensive to a critical mass of KBOO’s membership. There is no doubt that current board members understand the history and the present reality at KBOO, and like the KBOO members, the board understands that the democratic ethos of the station, with evident ebbs and flows, has attracted a membership that wants to be involved and a staff that is creative as it and volunteer programmers present a real alternative to commercial and public radio in Oregon. We truly fear that the recent movement away from our democratic history will be the downfall of KBOO. Corresponding to that belief, we propose two motions that will help KBOO remain a membership centered station.

    MOTIONS

    1. . Move to place the board policy manual in abeyance and refer it to the Personnel Committee as it violates the spirit of both the KBOO by-laws and strategic plan as well as the core values of KBOO. The committee would report its findings and recommendations to the board.

    Outcomes: Passing this motion would provide the opportunity for the board and staff to actually work with the membership in constructing a policy manual through healthy membership participation in both membership/board meetings and through the KBOO committee structure. It would also provide the board with the opportunity to explain the rationale of their changes and allow questions and feedback from concerned members. All former policies would be re-instated in compliance to KBOO policies in effect prior to January 2013 during this time of abeyance with the Interim Executive Director becoming the Interim Station Manager, re-installation of just cause policy, re-institution of past staff benefits, and many other changes that have occurred through the new policy manual that are not supported by the by-laws or strategic plan. The board should issue a statement encouraging open communication between members, staff and the Board, and reaffirming the collaborative spirit at the heart of KBOO Community Radio.

    2. In camaraderie with the KBOO membership, move for the KBOO board to commence good faith negotiations with the CWA.

    Outcomes: Both the membership and members of the board have responded positively to the staff voting to unionize. It is important noting KBOO’s history, culture, and most importantly mission; for negotiations to be conducted quickly in the spirit of KBOO. This is essential for the health of the board leading the participatory-membership.

    1. "and the strategic plan while at the same time alienating a large portion of the current membership."

      Since when was 75 people a large portion of current membership(5,500)?

      Is this that math thing again?

    3. Mark Sherman seems to be getting more involved with the Keep Saving KBOO Klub.

      Mark Sherman: Can you guys hear me? First I have no intention to badmouth anybody. I think anybody who volunteers and works at KBOO does an important role. KBOO is extremely important to me and I'm not necessarily here to cause a conflict. However I tried to ask KBOO starting on Monday to get PSA's out about this meeting and was unsuccessful doing so. I can't understand why an organization that makes PSA's couldn't do one for this meeting. Number two. I don't know why we have a transparency issue. If any of these changes were positive everybody would've endorsed them and believed in them and we would've gone forward and said great job, keep going. When I called up and asked Lynn to just give me an example of what will going to talk about today, I never got a response. To emails and a phone call but I had to read it in the Portland Tribune. The transparency is enough of an issue for me. What I'm calling for is we'll create a member, we'll call for a membership meeting, we'll get a quorum, we'll back off all the voting that the board did, we'll go back to something six months ago, we won't fire anybody and we'll create an open process for all these good things can happen. Otherwise I'm not buying into this stuff. I will pass out something that will allow you to sign your name because I've asked for a membership list and I haven't gotten it yet. Put your name on it. We'll call you up we'll have a meeting. We'll come up with something that's fair. KBOO is responsible to the membership, not the other way around. You fill in your name and number and I'll call you back.

      Unnamed audience member: Who are you?

      Mark Sherman. I'm a potential volunteer. Been a KBOO member for five years. And we paid $25 bucks a month until this shit started to happen. (audience laughs).

    4. Wait...this guy is giving $25/mo > $300/yr to KBOO?
      That's like a utility bill. I can't do that. Anyone know what the average donation is? The lowest listed is something like $60/yr for a mag subscription.

  3. Better yet, he's a POTENTIAL volunteer. He's been a member for 5 years but has yet to actually contribute anything other than a check.
    He must not be a REAL member. Not part of the inner party.
    Is he one of those Democrats trying to stuff the ballots?
