Blue Stakes Business – Information on Voting items

Vote on Amended Articles of Incorporation:

These Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation have been unanimously approved by the Board of Directors and are being recommended to the full association membership for approval and adoption. The notable change is to update the purpose section wording to include our dual purpose of not only processing locate requests, but also to provide damage prevention education. This additional detail and description may allow Blue Stakes to update its IRS status from being a 501(c)6 to a 501(c)3 entity, which could potentially bring cost savings to both Blue Stakes and its membership. Additionally, there was some minor wording cleanup for clarity.
