KPFK may be only providing the "least" notice about meetings open to it's members ...why ?

another OPEN letter written to all KPFK management and some LSB members:

"on April 30 2009 6:00 pm PST, only these 2 separate notices were found:

on = it is noted: "KPFK LSB Meeting Saturday, May 16 2009, 4:00pm - 8:00pm posted by tgoodman The KPFK Local Station Board is scheduled to meet on Saturday, May 16, 2009 at 1:00 pm Pacific Time. See here [GOES TO KPFK same old website where no information is listed there] for KPFK governance notices and here for related information. Location: In-person meeting
Contact: Steve Weatherwax " [Note: No location was cited above.]

OK, that's one notice, But... searching diligently further to find details of above:

then I found this on website searched at same time [ Note: ON KPFK website only 1 thing shows, not LSB...but only an LSB Finance meeting notice instead]

It reads: "Thursday, May 14 2009, 1:00pm - 5:00pm posted by tgoodman
The KPFK LSB Finance Committee will meet on Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 1:00 pm at the station. Contact: Summer Reese "

THESE DO NOT MATCH AND ANNOUNCE SEPARATE EVENTS, but no coordination of information on either / both websites list the other. Makes no sense !

There is nothing else [LSB or committee meetings] listed on the KPFK website, as of 4/30/09 6pm

Please note that the bylaws states that the MINIMUM, and not that the employees should be working to the lowest standards possible ! , but that the least " NOTICE least 7 days prior to the date of each meeting" [ the words "at least" implying clearly that this is the least - not the preferred - time to give notice. ]
"whenever feasible, notice shall also be posted to the station's website at least 7 days prior to the date of each meeting."

So what makes it NOT FEASIBLE to provide a longer time frame for notices ?
and who is it that explains what is or is not "feasible" ?

the dictionary states: " fea·si·ble adj.
1. Capable of being accomplished or brought about; possible plan. See Synonyms at possible.
2. Used or dealt with successfully; suitable"

Why is it NOT POSSIBLE to do better or be more timely or considerate to the members ?

What makes the station's management and staff decide how much notice the public can have about all committee & LSB meetings [in which they are allowed to observe or participate] ?

What is considered "adequate notice" by providing information to it's stakeholders-members of all such meetings ? Only the 'least" which is minimum stated ?

Is that how the station is being operated ? by it's "least" minimum standards and with the continual yearly excuse of not-enough-money-so-send-more-and-more !!! ????

Why are there no notices placed on the website a day or two after each prior meeting to allow people who are interested to plan ahead and attend and participate ... to help IMPROVE what is occurring at this .......___xxxx'd _____ station ?

This is a continual delay and neglect of sharing information, regardless of who is responsible or malfunctioning or not-caring.

please respond to this concern and inform anyone who is involved in the responsibility of notifying or 'noticing' the members about meetings.

thank you"
