Attorney2020 :

Yes. First you must submit the Articles of Incorporation with the state, draft Bylaws and make sure to title any assets in the name of the non-profit that would suffice.

Attorney2020 :

Next, one board meeting a year and make sure to keep track of the minutes of that meeting. A good resource to govern your non-profit would be a NOLO Non-Profit Corporation Guide on amazon or at your local law library. It would be good practice to keep this book handy in case any questions come up by your Board members and so on.

Attorney2020 :

Other than what I have said above, there are no additional requirements that are needed to maintain a non-profit status. I hope this helps. Please rate my answer. Please let me know id you need any additional information.
