Customer: REASONS FOR A CORPORATION SEPARATE FROM NATIONAL MARINE CORPS LEAGUE ORGANIZATIONIf the conference is a National Marine Corps League Convention (function) why is a separate 2017 MCL Convention Corporation being set-up?
The local host Marine Corps League Detachment has to set up the corporation, because all funds and responsibilities will be on the host not the National Marine Corps League. It will allow the local host to solicit donations / event sponsors and gifts that only a non-profit corporation can receive.What is the general purpose of the 2017 MCL Convention Corporation?
The vessel in which all funds for the event will collected and distributed as required or needed. It will also protect your Department / Detachment from lawsuits or liability if something happens, with the corporation, it would be the liable party.What is the responsibilities of the National MCL Corporation?
The National Marine Corps League is the overseer of the Convention to ensure everything is run and set up according to the needs of the Convention and membership.How will these two entities interact if separate?
The local host will run the show and be in charge of everything before / during / after the convention. Once the final site visit is done and everything is according to the National Bylaws, the National Convention Committee steps back and allows the local host to run things. The National Convention Committee is basically an advisor source to the Local Host to ensure everything gets taken care of.Will 2017 MCL Convention Corporation be dissolved after convention?
Once all financial books have been audited, reconciled, and closed, yes the corporation will be dissolved. Remaining monies will be donated to veterans organizations.A new convention corporation is set-up every year. Example last year was Tulsa, OK “2016 Marine Corps League Convention Corporation”.
