Well, it’s taken a while but videoman, orion and myself spend a couple of hours tonight correcting typos and printing. We’ve finally knocked out the full 501(c)3 application, and gotten it shipped off. Many thanks to all of the folks who have contributed to it, especially Tony and Becca. We’ll be getting most of it up on the wiki shortly for the general maker community to use for reference.
All in it’s over 75 pages of forms, documents, narrative and bits and pieces and it’s taken a lot of triple checking but we’re happy with what we’ve sent off. We’re hoping for an answer within a few months, but it’s always a bit of a gamble as to how long it’ll take the IRS to approve or come back with questions.
In other important news, the Annual Members Meeting has gotten scooted to the end of March this year to coincide with the Quarterly Clean-Up, and you must have paid your dues for March on time (before March 1st) in order to vote. An announcement and then big formal announcement will be coming out soon.
