The Office of Neighborhood Services is planning a series of instructional workshops for neighborhood council members and neighborhood supporters.
Next up is an event planning workshop at Southside Senior Activity Center, 3151 E. 27th Ave., at 6 p.m. Monday.
The Office of Neighborhood Services’ Jackie Caro said that workshop will cover how to calculate the cost and effects of an event as well as cover the city’s special event permitting process.
On Oct. 21, there will be a nonprofit status information session at Corbin Senior Activity Center, 827 W. Cleveland Ave.
The session will feature legal specialists and city staffers who will answer questions and try to explain the pros and cons of neighborhood councils becoming 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.
“It’s a lot of work to set up a 501(c)(3) registration,” Caro said. There are benefits and drawbacks to becoming a nonprofit organization. “This is a session to explore that issue,” she said.
