Annette moved we accept the minutes from the July meeting in Ventura submitted by Kathleen. 2nd by Kathleen. All approved.
Corp VS. LLC
Annette gave information on corporation vs. Limited Liability Company.
Discussion on the feelings of the group, the feeling is that we should go with the LLC due to the fact that is has all the benefits of protecting against liability while it does not have all of the stringent requirements. Connie moved to become a LLC, Kathleen second. All approved.
Discussion on DBA and the need to narrow our area to a location that would encompass the majority of members. If we ask for 200 miles Riverside would be the best area to pick as it covers the desert to the beach. Joe will get the information on our DBA in Riverside, the information that will be needed to open it as a LLC, the cost etc. (Reminder to all this is why no checks have been cashed). The DBA will be run as P.C.P.R.T.,L.L.C.
