(a.k.a. We get our very own law student to help us fill out forms)
A little over a month ago, I had an appointment at the Legal Clinic and talked about the MITCH Collective concept. At that point we were still unsure what sort of organization would best suit our goals, but one of the very pleasant lawyers at the Legal Clinic chatted with me and we decided on forming a non-profit.
Just a few days ago, I went back to the Legal Clinic with Sylva and Lujia (we three make up the founding board of directors) for another preliminary meeting. Peter wore an eye-catching Egyptian motif tie and Zach (the law student) was dressed in fetching mauve (hard to do, you say? well he pulled it off). We bantered back and forth about all sorts of things. After answering some of our pressing questions, we started to fill out the form to become incorporated. I’m very glad we had lawyers (even a lawyer in training) to guide us. The three page document managed to use very confusing terminology. We have some fun form-related homework to do before our meeting next week. Did I mention I love making budgets?
