EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource

Welcome to EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. Episode 75 is the tenth in a series of Quick Tip episodes focusing on the details of state registration of nonprofit corporations. With the help of Joe Hilliard, today we move south to look at the basic state filing requirements for nonprofit corporations operating in North Carolina and South Carolina. You can find all the prior episodes on our website or on the Farella YouTube channel, where there is a playlist just for state filing requirements. We’ll work our way through the rest of the states in future episodes.
