2010 – ASPARC Applies for Non-Profit Status

2010 – ASPARC Applies for Non-Profit Status

Early in 2010 ASPARC members are focusing on fulfilling paperwork requirements to request 501(c)3 status for ASPARC. This will enable ASPARC to elicit donations and solicit grants independently. In May, attending member of the ASPTF elected the following officers and board members:

  • Acquanetta Knight, President*
  • Judith Harrington, Vice President
  • Martha Bosworth, Secretary
  • David Coombs, Treasurer
  • Dollie Hambrick
  • Sue Matthews
  • Richard Burleson
  • Marilyn Lewis
  • Beverly Benson
  • Marion Johnson
  • Chandra Brown

*Ms. Knight needed to resign in September due to the Gulf Oil Crisis and the bylaws provided for Judith Harrington to assume the duties as president. Sue Matthews was voted by the board to become Vice President. A search for a nominee and replacement for one available board member began. In addition, ASPARC team members are updating the state prevention plan and are revising the 2009 Garrett Lee Smith grant application in anticipation of a request for new proposals.
