  • An amendment to the KFAI Bylaws adopted earlier this year by the Fresh Air Board of Directors has been approved and ratified by a vote of volunteers.

    Eighty-nine volunteers (of 245 eligible voters) participated in the approval/ratification process. All 89 votes were in favor of the Bylaws change; there were no “No” votes cast. Unlike an election where a simple majority of votes determines the outcome, changes to the KFAI Bylaws additionally require a quorum — a minimum of 25 percent of all eligible voters — to participate or the proposed change fails, regardless of the outcome of the Yes-No vote. The 89 voters constituted 36 percent of eligible volunteers, and exceeded the quorum necessary to pass.

Over 70 motivated volunteers have voted already. Qualified KFAI volunteers — those who have volunteered a total of nine hours of their time over the three-month period of July-Sept. — are eligible to vote.

  • KFAI's recent Fall Membership Drive was an unqualified success, with mailed-in pledges pushing it past the $65,000 goal within 48 hours of wrapping up the on-air portion of our "right-sized" two-week fundraising effort. As the final contributions to the pre-drive mailer continue to show up in the daily mail, it appears we may even "tickle" the magic $70,000 figure. Job well done, KFAI members and supporters!

  • KFAI's Fall Membership Drive concluded in exciting fashion Thursday as a surprise $2,000 matching pledge early in "Freewheelin'" ushered in a flurry of 19 calls and a half dozen online contributions.
