The UFO's day-to-day operations are all carried out under the banner of the UFO Constitution, which is presented here in its entirety.
Bizhosting.com ARTICLE ONE: BECOMING A MEMBER
To become a member of the UFO (United Fanzine Organization) co-op, one need only inform the Chairman of one's application, and send copies of his/her comic or zine to all members listed on the UFO Roster. The membership will then vote on acceptance.
ARTICLE TWO: MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS
(A) All members are required to publish a minimum of 20 pages of material (comics or text) at least once a year.
(B) Each member is required to send a free copy of each published memberzine to all other co-op members. Publishers of web comics should send hard copy versions of their online comics to the membership (as not all members may have the benefit of an internet connection)
(C) Each member is required to submit a column to at least every other issue of the UFO Newsletter (TETRAGRAMMATON FRAGMENTS). These member columns are generally used for reviewing of memberzines, discussion of club business, and voting on applicants and other important matters. Members may also want to submit comics and artwork, discuss their publishing plans, etc.
(D) Member dues are $20 annually. These dues help to cover co-op promotion, as well as the publication and mailing of the bi-monthly UFO Newsletter.
ARTICLE THREE: MEMBERZINE REQUIREMENTS
(A) Each UFO comic or zine must carry the UFO symbol on at least one of its four covers (front, back, inside front and back).
(B) Each UFO publication is required to carry the UFO Checklist. For shorter publications, an abbreviated checklist may be used.
(C) Censorship: We don't do it in the UFO. Members are encouraged to be responsible however, and taste and common sense in publishing are encouraged.
ARTICLE FOUR: THE UFO CHAIRMAN
Once each year, a Chairman election is held. An elected Chairman has the duties of editing and publishing the bi-monthly UFO Newsletter, conducting the general club business, managing member dues accounts, or delegating these affairs. It is important that he or she appoint an Emergency Chairman (a backup in case the Chairman has to suddenly resign the position) immediately upon assuming office. There is no limit to the number of terms a Chairman may hold.
