Hi Steve I heard from Bob Collins in Centerville. He is too busy at work to do anything right at present; but he wants some handouts to give to his clients and friends. I gave him Barb as a contact person. He says he talks about FairTax.
Hi Steve Gary Clark from Centerville is listed twice how do we fix that? As soon as we hung up last night Dennis Cassel called. I ask him to join FairTax Nation. Jim from Medina has joined; so I told him he does hold a position. You may be hearing from these guys. Billie
In one of your posts you inquired about setting up a 501(c)(6). Some of this you may already know but I am not sure so forgive me if you don't find this helpful.
The first step is to setup a non-profit corporation. you can check out legal zoom http://www.legalzoom.com/non-profits/non-profits-pricing.html for information on how to do this. The cheapest package is 139.00. Plus 79 to get a federal tax ID. You will need this ID to setup bank accounts, accept credit cards etc.
The next step is to apply for 501(c)(6) status though the IRS. it doesn't look like legal zoom offers this. There is an application on the IRS website, one website estimated that it would take about 30 hours to complete this form.
Hope this helps.
When we get set up on the Convio system, that will be very easy to do as I understand the system now. The problem is you may get tagged as a spammer and your email may not get through.
You may want to try a service such as Constant Contact which has a 60 day free trial -- but it only lets you send out 100 email at a time. It may be worth giving is a try. It will report how many of your email addresses are bad and how many people actually open your email.
Barb is a better one to ask about know active Ohio members I think. I think my list is pretty limited. She has been active in all the Dayton area groups plus has participated in more events and is a better record keeper. I have had limited response from the lists Marilyn sent me. Barb's knowledge is from personal contact.
As to the color on the site, below your picture on the left is a line that says change my photo or theme. Click the theme and it gives you a lot of options I just kept playing with different ones til I find one i liked.
I have made you an administrator on the OH group so you can update your leadership directly on the site. If you want someone else from the group to help edit the list, just let me know and I will make them an administrator also -- but they must be a member of the OH group.
The "official" list of OH leadership is posted on the OHio group on this site http://fairtaxnation.ning.com/group/ohiofairtax
The problem is the list is years out of date. I will check to make sure you are an admisitratior on the group so you can updade the OH leadership list on the site.
I will check the CAs I have for OH and send you a list of the leaders I have listed to your regular email address. I sent you a list of all the past leaders I could find from OH and sent you that list, but I don't remember where I sent it so I will send that to your regualr email address also.
Steve I was happy to see that you are willing to take the State Director's job. We will help you in any way we can. I seriously don't think we can move forward the way we want without someone at the helm.
I second Dave's comment. Thanks Steve!

Hi Steve. Here is what Marilyn said, "Yea!!!! I hope you will be on the OH conference call Thursday night. We sure need a SD in Ohio!" So please get in touch with her and let's get the ball rolling. Everyone at the Dayton Mall meeting thinks you should take the state job.
