the direction for Indymedia in Urbana-Champaign. From the beginning, our IMC was
founded on this idea of equality – no single group, managers or representatives are in
charge. The decisions that affect the UCIMC the most are made by the members at the
membership meeting, which is twice yearly, on the first Saturday of April and the first
Thursday of October.
