Sullivan Renaissance Seminar on Wednesday, November 2

October 20, 2005

[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance is holding a seminar to help local communities understand the kinds of not-for-profit organizations that can be formed, the pros and cons of each, and what is necessary for IRS approval.  Legal advisor Michael West will lead the discussion about non-profits on Wednesday, November 2 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Liberty.


Representatives of local groups that have received their 501-(c)-3 designation from the IRS will also be present.  Pre-registration is requested.


Michael West is a legal advisor for the Council of Community Services of New York State, Inc. (CCSNYS) and a partner in the law firm of Watson & West, PLLC.  He has represented clients in all areas of criminal and civil litigation, but his practice is now devoted exclusively to issues concerning the non-profit community. 


West has conducted extensive trainings for non-profit boards of directors and executive staff and provides a wide variety of legal services to non-profit and tax-exempt organizations.  He is a graduate of Rutgers University and the Albany Law School of Union University, where he served as an Executive Editor with the Albany Law Review


The seminar is sponsored by Sullivan Renaissance, The Sullivan County Division of Planning and Community Development, and The Catskill Center for Conservation and Development.


Sullivan Renaissance is a two-phase aesthetic improvement program of the Beaverkill Foundation with support from the Gerry Foundation.  It has funded over 165 projects in all 6 villages and 15 towns in Sullivan County over the last five years.  Details of the 2006 program will be announced at the Winter Forum in February.


To register for the seminar on “Forming a Not-For-Profit” or for more information, call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445.  Representatives of Sullivan Renaissance are available to visit a community to explain the program.
