Re: Call for Discussion: Formation of the Society of Marbling
- Thanks for relating that Ann,
Any commments on this process are very welcome. Just to quickly respond-
we are unsure just which state to incorporate in at this time. I have been
advised that the Foundation Center in Washington may help to narrow the
choices, though checking with the organizations you mentioned may help. It
has also been advised that we avoid states with lots of bureaucracy and red
tape- and ESPECIALLY Washington DC!
I think that for now, developing a Mission Statement is a good starting point.
That means thinking about what the various goals of the Society will be , and
how to phrase it in a careful, succinct way. Those ideas will influence the
Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws.

them helpful. Ann (Lederer)
