I recently started a Non-Profit Corp. registered in Nevada, doing business in southern California, physical offices located in Rosarito Beach Mexico. We sponsor medical services for the uninsured and unemployed through a Membership Plan provided by a Mexican Hospital    Questions:

1. Can My non-profit corp. have only 2 officers, a President & Secretary?
2. If I need a Treasurer, can the Secretary serve as a Tresurer?
3. Can the President serve as a Director?
4. Do we have to register as a Foreign Corporation and file a "DBA" in california and Nevada?
here are the answers to your questions.

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. You do not need to file a d/b/a in Nevada unless your corporate name is XXXXX XXXXX the name you use. If it is you should file the d/b/a. YOu will need to qualify as a foreign croporation in CA and get a d/b/a if you need one in Nevada.

You of course need to check Mexican law to see what you need to do there. Form 2553 is an S corp election that is not for Not for Profit corporations.
