TAGNW now operating as a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization

By October 1, 2020TAG

I am honored to report that following our new filing as a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization on July 31st, 2020, our transition is complete and TAGNW is now operating as a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization beginning October 1st, 2020. It has been an incredible journey of vision and clarity of mission. I would like to thank each of the TAG Board of Directors, TAG Advisory Board, and TAG Committee members for their efforts and contributions, and the many TAG Community Groups and Community Partners that have offered feedback and support. In particular, I would like to thank previous TAG President David LeBow, TAG President Matt Bain, and TAG Treasurer Ed O’Neill for their incredible focus and collaboration in this endeavor. David and I started this transition while I was TAG Vice President two years ago with an enormous amount of research and planning. What an incredible two years it has been!
