  • 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.
