Reorganizational Meeting Minutes:

Minutes were posted on the web site.
Approved by hand vote with an abstention by Cheech
Old Business
Jslagle - found an online group on non-profits. Liability tends to flow to the organizer of an event. Will open thread on NWO to discuss. $125 filing fee. Needed: Board & Bylaws.
Non-Profit LLC
Advantage
LLC - liability does not flow to the statutory agent
Unincorporated Association
Still required to file with the state and create bylaws
Liability Issues
MIGO forces a liability waiver upon joining
Liability waivers could be signed at the beginning of an event.
George - Banking
We can open an account now, but would be unconventional. A tax ID number is usually needed to set up an account. Needed:
Incorporate, not necessary to file tax return.
Acquire Tax ID
Checking account could be formed probably for free
