Economic Liberty for Main Street (the Nevada County public bank working group) is finalizing its application to the Public Banking Institute (PBI) for chapter status. As a chapter of PBI, our local group will be able to work under their nonprofit status (including the ability to collect tax deductible donations) as well as have the cachet of association with a recognized national organization.
If the application is accepted, the chapter Association would likely be announced at the Public Banking Conference 2013 taking place in San Raphael California between June 2 and 4th. The conference is open to the public. Information can be found at: https://pba2013.pathable.com/
