Lose to Win with WHIW!

Amendment to the Harvard Community Radio Bylaws: Board of Directors

In Article VI, Section 2 of the HCR Bylaws, it states about the Board of Directors that The Board shall consist of up to thirteen members.

After discussion at the December 13, 2015 board meeting, it was determined that a special vote would need to be called to pursue an amendment to this section, changing it from “up to thirteen members” to “up to fifteen members.”

If you are a member of Harvard Community Radio, please vote to affirm this change or reject this change in order to retain the current bylaws. Voting will close Tuesday, December 12th at 12 pm.
