Re: E-M:/ Board of Directors vs. Steering Committee

If it's incorporated it requires a board of directors. Otherwise it is just an association of like-minded individuals and you can do what you like in regard to organization.

Perhaps someone out there can answer this.

I'm on the steering committee of a local environmental organization, FOLK
(Friends of the Land of Keweenaw).  The organization started around 1990 as
a response to a proposed paper mill on Keweenaw Bay.  We began by
establishing a steering committee, but no board of directors.  In reviewing
our bylaws recently, the question came up as to whether we would be better
off with a board of directors instead.  Does anyone know the practical or
legal differences between the two?
