Over the past two years The Daily Toggle has posted some helpful articles for administrators of MINI clubs. We covered organizational issues such as creating a Club Handbook and setting up your club legally. We also covered operational topics such as conducting club elections and planning a fun rally.
Here is the best of Club Corner.

Having a clearly written Club Handbook allows new members to know immediately what you’re about and keeps the goals of the club laser focused for success. In this article, Ryan helps get you started.

Establish Your MINI Club as a 501(c)7
Many Mini and MINI clubs are still informal groups with no real structure and organization. But if your club will be generating and spending money, you’ll want to set up your club as a non-profit corporation. In addition, some venues where you might want to hold club events may require liability insurance, which may then require you hold a policy in the business entity’s name. In this article we discuss what paperwork needs to be filed in order to establish your club as a 501(c)7.
