Nonprofit Status Update

Dear CEDA members,

As many of you know, we have been working with the IRS for a while now trying to maintain our tax-exempt status. For those of you who were not present at the meetings when this situation was discussed, I have included at the end of this letter a general summary of events to help you understand the situation. Additionally, there is a major Action Item we need to accomplish as soon as possible – this is outlined below.
