Strategic Plan > Best practices: Discussion on best practices

  • Cleveland – by laws revision are tedious/rigid
    • Being clear but being able to be flexible
    • Rich – historically why are bylaws rigid? Back then we were wary of station independence and wanted to give the volunteers the power. Felt there was considerable danger that the organization would be “over taken” from an outside party.
    • Kirby – example is 3 board members elected per cycle
    • Cleveland – only 40 members when bylaws were created. Much easier to get ¼ of members involved. Much easier to get approval. Would like to see clear guidelines that are flexible to update.
    • Mark – flexible sound like Guidelines as opposed to Policy
    • Cleveland will look for any research from Strategic Plan on “Best Practices”
