Margaret Lewis said that since joining the Mediation Committee she‚Äôs become more aware of procedures. She said changes are happening at the station right now with old staff and new staff. Suggested that procedures and processes be shared with members, staff, etc. because then everyone can be sure that they are being followed. She was spurred to come today by the resolution on the Consent Calendar and she doesn‚Äôt believe that policy has been followed to spur this action.
Betty Etter objected to the resolution on the consent calendar. She thinks RCR failed to warn, talk with or work with Jama Chaplin before putting this resolution out publicly. She has known Jama for 30 years and thinks she is all about the good and necessary details.

a. Pacifica payment, participation
Todd noted that KMUD stills host its archive with Pacifica, but she has had trouble with them in customer service for it. Pacifica‚Äôs financial difficulties were noted. Technical Director Simon Frech is exploring other options for hosting the archive. We get Democracy Now! through Pacifica. We have heard that we would be able to get Democracy Now! directly. The difference would be $4,000 annually for Democracy Now, the archive, and shows that we get occasionally to cover Public Affairs shows. Murphy moved to table. Doyka seconded. Passed unanimously.
