There is a tremendous interest coming from our communities of wanting to know how to form a nonprofit business. Careful consideration should be given to this quest and much attention needs to be given to the proper steps to take. Failure to do so could result in with serious consequences for individuals as well as becoming detrimental to the original cause for which the non-profit was designed. If you are considering stating a non-profit business, please plan to attend this very informative seminar. Participants will discover: • Basics on what a non-profit business is • Refine the definition of a non-profit • Issues to consider before starting a non-profit • Key steps in forming a non-profit • Forms and Documents needed to be filed • What takes place at the first board meeting • Do you need an attorney?
