The Station Manager is responsible for all hires. (See Section 2.4.8, “Hiring Committee for Station Manager”.)
Job applications shall be kept on file for one year in case of immediate job openings.

Attachment II
Policy Committee memo on PSRC

August 29,2019

TO: RCR Board of Directors
FROM: Rob Bier, Chair, Policy Committee
RE: PSRC policy changes

You asked me to check with Nate Horning about the proposed changes to PSRC policy. He, in turn, consulted his predecessor, Cynthia Click.

Nate replied, in part, as follows:
“I only have one issue with the 5.3 policy concerning the PSRC. I would appreciate it if the sentence on term limits were to be removed for now. Yes, this is a good suggestion and something to consider, the positives and negatives. With all due respect, I would like to remind the Board that the PSRC is strictly an advisory council to assist the Program Director(s). The KMUD BOD does not need to trouble themselves with the formation and work of the PSRC. However, I always welcome input and suggestions!”

Cynthia gave Nate some helpful history of the PSRC, ending, in part, with:
“The PSRC is NOT A BOARD COMMITTEE. The PSRC is the Program Director’s advisory committee. It does not fall under the BOD members’ purview. They can change this, but as it stands, they cannot make these decisions. If you (i.e., Nate) are interested in term limits, you can impose them.”

In conclusion, I want to add that I agree with both Nate and Cynthia. We do not need to require term limits for PSRC members. It is purely advisory; its activities affect no one, except perhaps the Program Director(s). As you know, I am opposed to Board incursions into station management without a strong justification. I see no such justification here.

Attachment III
Program Selection and Review Council

[Language to be eliminated is struck through. New language is underlined.]

2.4.1 Standing Committees
12/16/97; 08/24/04; 06/27/06; 02/12/18
The Board presently has five standing committees: Development, Finance, Policy, Mediation and Membership Drive. Standing committees include at least one Board member who is the Board-appointed chair. The chairperson of each committee will submit a list of committee members to the Board for approval. Members may be added as recommended by the committee chairperson and are subject to Board approval. Membership of the Board committees will be reviewed annually in the month following the seating of new Board members.
Committees draw up their own goals, rules, and definitions to implement the Board's broad plan. Committees report to the Board, which accepts, rejects or modifies their recommendations. Standing committees can have subcommittees at their discretion. Special committees have a limited project or timeframe. Committee expenditures shall be budgeted and approved ahead of time by the Board. Management's committees, such as the Program Selection and Review Council, are advisory to and defined by management.

5.3 PROGRAM REVIEW AND SELECTION COUNCIL
08/09/16
To ensure adequate community representation in the selection of programming on RCR, a Program Selection and Review Council (PSRC) will consist of RCR Program Director(s), Program Assistant(s) and a minimum of five active programmers or listeners. The PSRC is advisory to the Program Director(s) and Station Manager. Programmer Representatives on the Board of Directors, other staff or volunteers may be solicited to help recruit new members to the PSRC. Applicants for membership on the PSRC should apply to the Program Director(s) for review. All applications will be reviewed and put to a vote by the council. Non-management members serve two-year, staggered terms, which may be renewed by vote of the entire PSRC. Members can be removed from the PSRC by a vote of the members. The Station Manager shall oversee the ongoing participation of the PSRC in programming decisions. Input, such as comments or complaints regarding programming will be forwarded to the PSRC for review. Input shall be documented in programmer files by the Program Director(s).
