In response to a query from a beneficiary at the FFF/QSF II public board meeting –
Election of directors of the 501(c)(3) entity:
The 501(c)(3) does not have members. The initial directors are listed in the By-laws as Art Eisenson, Ron Friedman, Judith Parker, Dan Wilcox and Steve Chivers. At the initial organizational meeting of the Board, the initial directors may elect directors, who will hold office for two years (and until a successor has been designated and qualified). At the end of the term and in the event of the resignation or death of a director, the directors then in office will elect, by a majority vote, successor directors. (See the Bylaws, § 3.4, § 4.2, § 4.5, § 4.6; California Corporations Code (Nonprofit Corporation Law), § 5310, § 5220.)
Please note that TV Writers Fund for the Future Inc. is a non-profit public benefit corporation. It is a separate legal entity from QSF II and does not form part of the settlement.
The annual public meeting of the Board of Governors of the TV Writers Fund for the Future will take place at the Pacific Design Center on Saturday December 7th at 10:30 AM.
Seating is limited to 150. We will also provide a conference call facility for people to access remotely. Reservations open on Saturday 11/23.
