The Secretary of State of Calif. has granted corporation status to the UAMCC.

This is great news for us as we continue to move towards our launch date in early April. Our launch date was hinged on the fact on whether or not our corporation status would be granted in time. We submitted our corporation request back in December of last year. It is a detailed review process under the 501(c)-6 statue and we are delighted that the "Incorporated" status has been granted.

The United Association of Mobile Contract Cleaners Incorporation Number is C3191726

I would like to thank the TT for their hard work in making sure that all the necessary paperwork be in order or submitted for the UAMCC to function. The Corporation status was a big hurdle relating to the Assoc.'s infrastructure and we received this status right on time. Way to go Transition Team!!

I thought the UAMCC is a 501(c)3 i did not realize that 501(c)3's had to be inc. You learn something new every day.

Jonathan, here is from the IRS: The UAMCC is actually a 501(c)(6)


To meet the requirements of IRC 501(c)(6) and Reg. 1.501(c)(6)-1, an organization must possess the following characteristics:

1. It must be an association of persons having some common business Organization interest and its purpose must be to promote this common business interest;
2. It must be a membership organization and have a meaningful extent of membership support;
3. It must not be organized for profit;
4. No part of its net earnings may inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual;
5. Its activities must be directed to the improvement of business conditions of one or more lines of business (discussed under "The ‘Line of Business’ Requirement," page 21) as distinguished from the performance of particular services for individual persons;
6. Its primary activity does not consist of performing particular services for individual persons; and
7. Its purpose must not be to engage in a regular business of a kind ordinarily carried on for profit, even if the business is operated on a cooperative basis or produces only sufficient income to be self-sustaining

Thanks for clarifying, its nice to know you guys are legit. This way if in the furture someone is not complying the members can take the persons or person to court for violating the incorporation documents.

How contracts and extended business is run will also be included in a 501c(6)..

When can you leagally run charity and Raffles?

There should be an informal watchdog group in place, likely of members who donate no time, money or energy to the organization, which will make sure that those who do choose to donate time, money or energy will in no way, shape or form be recipients of any type of return or preferential treatment as a result of that contribution. In fact, it should be the case that those who contribute the least receive the most from an organization like this. That is the beautiful irony of organizational dynamics.

You raise some very real points, an interesting commentary on human nature.

Ron, that is why things were setup legitimately from Jump Street. That is also why didn't just open a website and collect member dues. This organization is built around an infrastructure of longevity. The Bylaws of the organization ran through both The Foundation Group and the Secretary of State for approval and with some minor revisions, were passed.

We have legal counsel (The Foundation Group mentioned above) that has advised us in the setup of this organization. We also have a CPA firm and other avenues for long term legal counsel. This not like anything that has existed before it. I say that with no disrespect to other industry organizations or endeavors. That's why it has taken many months to get right.

We're approaching the light at the end of the tunnel. Its very exciting to see where the hard work has gotten this organization. Countdown to launch, Ron! :biggrin:

You nailed it, Scott. The transition team did not set this up so any individual with a questionable set of motives could come in and dissassemble it or take it down a bad road. The bylaws have an oversight committee that will monitor the actions of the B.O.D and the Executive Director. We may not have written a document like the Constitution of the US, but it has systems of checks and balances.

This is a great thing, when is and how will the elections be held. Nominating committees will I assume be set up?

Looking forward to the organization moving on and getting a person or persons to lead the uamcc into the future.

This is a great thing, are the bylaws availiable to members?

Per the By Laws ~ :rolleyes:

Section 1b. Purpose of Oversight Committee. The Oversight Committee shall act as the general membership liaison with the Board of Directors as it relates to the affairs and overall direction of the UAMCC. Members of the Oversight Committee will not have a vote regarding board matters but have the right to observe activities that are conducted and performed by the elected board of directors. The oversight committee shall not interfere with the normal duties set forth for the elected board. Their sole purpose is to ensure that the established policies and directives of the UAMCC Assoc. are sustained and followed in the highest most ethical manner.

So this just happened this week, I will assume now we can start taking Members legit?

Nope Ron...your assumption is wrong. The Internal Revenue Service identified the UAMCC as a business entity back in October of 2008. The incorporation with the Secretary of State began back in December of 2008. As a Supplier Member if you would like to see proof of this I would be more than happy to send it to you.

Hope all is well! :biggrin:
