Mission Statement

Mission Statement:

N.I.C.E. Nipomo Incorporation Committee for Education is a non-profit organization, consisting of a cross section of interested residents, organized to educate the community of Nipomo on the benefits and drawbacks of Incorporation. NICE, will through workshops and community town hall meetings, inform and enable citizens to make an informed decision in the future on the incorporation of Nipomo. The organization does not and will not take a position on incorporation, but is simply committed to moving the process forward so that the citizens can choose the best course for themselves.

501(c)3 Minutes for 4/12/07 Meeting



501C3 Committee Minutes –    April 12, 2007

Present: Bonnie Eisner, Guy Murray, Susie Hermreck, Donna Mehlschau

Absent: Terri Howard

The meeting was called to order at 2:30 p.m. We went over the items that had been approved by the steering committee, which were, the N.I.C.E. Mission Statement and

Board of Directors.

We then began work on our next items- The Articles of Incorporation and the Draft Bylaws. It seems like every step forward brings us two steps back as we begin to read the requirements of each step.

Articles of Incorporation- Guy reviewed the draft he had found and we approved the concept. Guy will present this at the next steering committee meeting.

Federal ID Number- This step requires a P.O. Box to secure the EIN number.

Motion: To secure a post office box using the incorporation money so that we can move forward with our 501C3 and brochures. Motion by Susie/second by Donna.

Paperwork for 501C3- Donna handed out a copy of the large application for incorporation. She suggested that we ask at the steering meeting and the community workshop to see if there is someone in town who has filed one of these before. They might know the ins and outs better than us. We agreed that we want to get as much correct as possible on our first attempt.

Draft Bylaws- Guy has purchased a book for us to use. It’s a book for dummies on how to become a non-profit. The committee will begin work on these and post on line next month, so that we can vote on them at our June steering meeting. That way, everyone on the steering committee, can review them prior to the June meeting so that we will know what we need to fix and be able to move on to the next step.

Next meeting will be May 10th at 10:00.

Adjourned at 3:30p
