The membership of KZYX  has voted overwhelmingly to approve bylaw changes designed to strengthen board governance and effectiveness by reducing the frequency of board elections to every other year from annually and extending the term of board members to four years from three.

Independent tabulator P.J. Nielsen reported that 705 members voted yes to the changes, or 95.5 percent of the vote, while 33 or 4.5 percent voted no. There was one spoiled ballot and several that stated no preference. Only ballots received in Ms Nielsen’s Post Office box by 31 October were counted.

On Tuesday October 30th KZYX aired a live broadcast in collaboration with Mendocino College! The Audio of the performance is here:
