IIRC, we have several ham's in the group.. anybody a member of RARS? They're a
501(c)(3) incorporated group... maybe someone
there would know what we needed. We could try asking there.

I'm all for it, but who's going to do it?
I don't know anything about it, can't help and won't be able to monitor if a
good job is being done. From the postings in this thread, most people here are
in a similar state.
If we go 501(c)(3), we need a pool of people who understand the process well
enough that it won't go off the rails into the indefinite future (cf putting a
ml/webpage server on the internet). One person in the club is not enough. I'd
say we'd need three to be safe.
To go 501(c)(3) someone has to stand up and let us know they're doing to do it
or else we have to pay money. (Money is acceptable to me on the assumption that
we'll cover the extra cost with extra donations. I pay to have someone do my
taxes, I have no problem with TriLUG paying for its filings.)
