Our Structure

Crystal Coast Skeet Club is a (membership required) non profit club.

Under N.C.G.S. Section 59B-2 enacted in 2007 and updated in 2014

Unincorporated associations are groups that may be loosely or tightly organized, but that are not incorporated under applicable laws. They are merely bodies of individuals who are acting together with a common purpose and using some practices of incorporated entities in their governance.

After Jan. 1, 2007, North Carolina nonprofit associations are no longer airy nothings. They exist. Chapter 59B firmly establishes nonprofit associations as entities (sort of). No one is required to do anything, file anything, or to change any procedures. Instead, the Act unilaterally awards the status of “entity” and creates new, entirely voluntary, possibilities for interested nonprofit groups. There are no registration or filing requirements, no fees to pay, and no mandatory form of organization or rules about how to operate. 
Many unincorporated associations elect to have trappings of incorporated entities: charters, bylaws, agreed rules of governance, official names, various officers and agents. None of these is required by the Act, however. There is no requirement that anything must be in writing, or that the association have a name, or that its purpose must be stated anywhere or by any particular means.
All that is required is that at least two persons must agree to (or, at least go along with) some manner of “organization” for a common nonprofit purpose. This broad definition is intended to extend the benefits of the Act to the smallest, most informal and most temporary of groups, clubs, teams and classes.    N.C.G.S.
