Monday March 27 - Becoming a Not-For-Profit and Charitable Organization with Craig Logue
Learn how to “legitimize” your organization by becoming an incorporated not-for-profit or registered charity. We’ll address the pros and cons of incorporating and whether or not it makes sense to be a not-for-profit or a charity.

Topics will include:
Before you incorporate
Putting together a Board of Directors
Pros and cons of charitable status
What charitable status means
How to maintain your charitable status

About LivingArts Workshops
LivingArts Workshops provide a new series of learning opportunities targeted to individual artists and administrators of emerging and small-scale arts organizations in the Hamilton region. These six workshops address knowledge gaps identified through LivingArts Hamilton consultations as those that most commonly impede artists' career growth - from financial management and business planning, to self-promotion and social media. Collectively, these low-cost sessions aim to equip arts workers with the knowledge to manage the many competing priorities of sustaining and promoting their work, develop stronger support networks, and improve the capacity of Hamilton’s grassroots arts community to sustain its creative momentum.
