BCUNA Transition Information

Update: Paddlesports North America (PNA) received a Certificate of Incorporation in New York in late October. We have been organized as a Type B not-for-profit in NY, which will make obtaining federal 501(c)(3) not-for-profit status more likely. Currently our lawyer is reviewing draft bylaws that were authored by the initial Board of Directors. The transitional Board of Directors is currently working on the federal 501(c)(3) application, a business plan, and development of a website. Progress has been slow, but we are moving forward. We do not have an estimate as to when we will be operational at this point, but the Board is hard at work to make this happen as soon as possible. Stay tuned for further updates!
