After the infrastructure of the club has been established it is time to join the RRCA to access the many great benefits we have to offer your club.
Once you join the RRCA and have obtained your nonprofit status and insurance you will really be ready to get going with your club activities, which should include some long range and short-term planning at by the board of directors. Be sure to form volunteer-run committees, appoint some program directors, solicit donations, pursue sponsorships, and create a calendar of club activities.
Once the running club is established it must be continuously cared for in order to stay in good standing from an IRS standpoint and from a civic standpoint. The minutes taken at club meetings are the permanent record of the proceedings and should be clear, accurate, brief and objective. Minutes should be shared with club members.
