Pacifica rescue plan 3-30-2017
Attached is the plan that I sent to the California Attorney General's office this afternoon.
I hope it is self-explanatory and answers the questions you have. If not, I'll be glad to answer more questions about this and other matters during the iED report at the PNB meeting tonight, assuming we actually get to the iED report.
Regarding the many questions some of you have had, and which I have not had time to answer individually, note that yes there are contingency plans in here, that we'd all like to avoid. And yes, I think we can avoid them. Recall that the AG also had big concerns about problems with our governance. But the AG will want to know what we can do if our main plans are not successful. As I told you a few weeks ago, they asked for a plan by the end of this month "for either establishing Pacifica's financial stability or dissolving the organization". Obviously, we absolutely do not plan to dissolve Pacifica, but they want to know that we are serious about getting our problems under control.
What you can do: The best way to avoid any of the contingencies in this plan are to help your station to get more listeners, get more members, and get more donations. I hope all of you are doing that, too. That also helps us to fulfill the Pacifica mission. Much of what I'm doing is oriented towards that.
Thanks for your support of your station and of Pacifica.
Interim Executive Director
