October 2010
By: Tom Lothamer
A friend recently called to warn me about an IRS crackdown. They're going after tax-exempt organizations that have failed to satisfy annual filing requirements for three consecutive years, and the penalty is severe: loss of tax-exempt status.

Front and Center

October 2010
By: Jerry Thacker
You are changing — we are changing. The only thing that we can be sure of in this life is change. People are born, grow, and eventually die. Organizations start, grow, mature, plateau, decline, and eventually pass off the scene. At The Center magazine has now been published in paper and on t...
