Here is our issue/question: We are looking for a climate controlled storage unit to stash a lot of what Bob Livingston, Treasurer, keeps at his house and on his bee truck. He needs his space again. Anyway, one of the storage entities I called for quotes presented us with an opportunity for free storage along with a couple other perks, as a nonprofit entity. Appears our side of the agreement would be to post a little info on our ABA site about “Morningstar”, their logo, and mention them at our meetings.
The Board agreed to consider this at our Monday Zoom meeting, and I am following up on their view that maybe we should assess whether this would be an ok thing to do from a legal standpoint. We all viewed this as an ‘in-kind’ issue and that it would not have any bad bearing on our non-profit status. If you are an attorney, would you mind looking briefly over the Morningstar Storage Agreement and we can also provide you a section of the ABA by-laws that we looked at Monday and see if you see any hang-ups? An arrangement such as this would save ABA between $1300 and $1500 annually. Just respond with a "Yes" and your name, and I'll pick up your email address off the ABA membership roster and go from there. Thanks!
