After over a year of work, ISEC is now officially recognized by the IRS as a 501c3 Corporation. What this means is that memberships in ISEC are now fully tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. And, it is retroactive to our corporate ‘start date’ (November 8th, 2008) so any and all contributions you made before are also deductible.
So, now you have NO EXCUSES for not joining ISEC!!
Seriously, if you have not become a member of ISEC, now is a great time to do so. Membership donations are the lifeblood of any volunteer group and ours is no exception.
We have a very full schedule this year. The first ISEC Report has been released, work is continuing on the 2011 ISEC Poster, the first ISEC Journal should be released in the next couple of weeks, we’re co-sponsors of the upcoming 2011 Space Elevator Conference, etc. We’ve also improved ‘structurally’. We now have a ‘dot org’ web presence, we’ve welcomed a new Board Member and we are now officially a 501c3 Corporation.
Please consider joining ISEC. A professional membership is only $68 and will go a long way in helping us push forward this most magnificent concept – thank you!
