I don't think anyone is opposed to a 502(c)3. We're not sure it is worth the effort. How much would it cost to register and to keep it? Would we need to file with the IRS every year?

Here is an interesting news article on how the IRS can cause pain over 501(c)3 status, by making formal recognition difficult. 

I just did a fast check on the internet, and apparently, the IRS says that normally filing the form for formal recognition takes 4 hours to understand, and 8 hours to fill out. I believe all the forms and information can be found on line. Actually, I think it should be do-able, but it is just a matter of time. I think I could invest some time on this, if there are people who want to do it -- I mean working as a small group. Let me know. 

(I don't think I understand who my e-mails are going to when I send them). 

I believe the issue is a number of member do *NOT* want to see CLUE become a 501c3. There has already been talk of forking a different group from CLUE. I could see that CLUE filed for 501c3 status that there would an exodus of members. I have enjoyed the informal and loosely organized nature of CLUE to date. Now, I could be wrong and that most other members do want to see a more formal CLUE. Perhaps it would be best to see what the larger group desires. As officer elections are soon to be held, I think it would be good if there was a clear direction the membership would like to see the club taken.
