Substitute motion by BET, second by SR.

"We urge the members of the national board and other LSBs to explore alternative

means of meeting the CPB's diversity criteria, including the voluntary

resignations of board members and the reshuffling of national board delegates

that do not reflect the diversity of their listening areas by their respective

LSBs.

"We furthermore state our opposition to any use of KPFAs cash reserves or annual

surplus to meet shortfalls at other stations cause by loss of CPB funding due to

lack of diversity in pacifica's governance system."

CH proposes amendment to be placed at start of para 2:

"We do not support adding further appointment to the PNB as remedy to the

diversity issue."

Passed as amended w/o objection.

Meeting adjourned by Orders of the Day at 5:00 PM.
