Step in creating a political movement
We are happy to announce that we have in our hands incorporation
papers for both the American Open Technology
Consortium and GeekPAC.
The AOTC has passed muster with the State of Illinois as a 501c3
not-for-profit organization. We are still waiting for final
approval of NF ststus from the IRS. GeekPAC has likewise been
incorporated as a corporation in the state of Illinois and papers
have been filed with the Federal Elections Commission. Approvel
from the feds is pending.
We have been informed by legal council that we can begin to
collect funds for both organizations, as long as we tell people
about he pending status of each organization. WE ARE THEREFORE
officially beginning our fundraising campaign.
The AOTC and GeekPAC are sister organizations that have two
distinct roles in affecting change in our very political world. To
understand the roles of each, please visit the web sites for each
group. http://www.aotc.info and
As the kick off to get the program started we are launching
Tell Ten Friends Campaign
We ask that you tell 10 of your friends and associates about the
AOTC and GeekPAC and the need to contribute to BOTH organizations.
Also ask them to Tell Ten Friends of their own.
This will make the AOTC nd GeekPAC grow like an organic entity,
like a political virus.
It is important that people contribute to both organzations, if
they can legally do so. ONLY US voters may contribute to GeekPAC.
Anyone may contribute to the AOTC, even our friens from around the
world. Donation forms are located at http://www.aotc.info/joinhelp/joinform.html
