More on Dual Club Participation:
There are a range of organizational structures in the various communities that PARAGON Co-op. Co. serves.
Therefore, the definitive test is the legal formation of the other organization.
If it’s a group, then although they have patches or even “club” in their name: we would legally consider it a group.
If the other organization is a fully formed business entity (eg: LLC, Corporation or 501c3); then it would be a conflict.
According to one source:
“Nonprofit directors who are appointed to serve on a board of directors by another nonprofit face a particular form of conflict. If an individual is a director on both the appointing board and the receiving board, an inherent conflict exists because the director owes a duty of loyalty to both organizations.”
Regrettably, that is challenge we want to mitigate.
A concrete example: PARAGON & (insert other entity) may both be non-profits, and competing for the same grant or fundraising source (eg: Sponsor).
We do have a separate category of membership for other Clubs that want to support PARAGON!
