(NIPOMO INCORPORATION COMMITTEE for EDUCATION)
501C3 Committee Minutes – May 10, 2007
Present: Bonnie Eisner, Guy Murray, Mike Eisner
Absent: Terri Howard Susie Hermreck, Donna Mehlschau
The meeting was called to order at 10:00 a.m.
Articles of Incorporation- Guy has them all typed and ready to send, but we need two more people to agree to have their name placed on the document. We will contact a few of the steering committee and see if they will agree. We will then send out, by e-mail, the articles of incorporation for all of the steering committee to vote on. When we have a majority, we will file these papers. We will have 27 months from the date these are filed to complete our incorporation non-profit status.
Draft Bylaws- It was agreed that all paperwork will be reviewed by the steering committee and not just the board of directors. It is felt that the steering committee is the full board and will be kept up to date on all matters regarding N.I..C.E.. We discussed various questions involved in creating the bylaws. We will follow the direction of the book and make them simple and concise.
EIN Number- Guy has secured this number and will be going to the bank to open up a checking account.
Paperwork- Donna has reviewed the C.D. from Guy and believes that if we have all of the pertinent information at hand, we can fill out the paperwork for incorporation in about 10 hours. She has agreed to assist Bonnie with this task. Donna has all of the pages from Chapter 9 printed and has reviewed them. The one item she needed was the person to keep all of the paperwork for public inspection. Guy has agreed to keep the binder at his office and we will use his address.
Next meeting will be July 12th at 2:00 at Mr. Murray’s office.
The committee meeting adjourned at 11:00 a.m.
