Public information

Recommended Posts

Guest LeeAnn

How do I find out what information is public information? Specifically elected board members names and some type of contact information. Is it public information on who is elected as a board member of a 501(c)3?

Also what happens if we have requested information like minutes and standing rules and we are denied?

Under Robert's Rules alone, only members are entitled to see the minutes and other documents of an organization. However, corporations are regulated by public law and the requirements may be different. This is a legal question which you should ask an attorney.

I agree that this is a legal question rather than a parliamentary one, but would add that it is my understanding that organizations that have IRS 501(c)3 tax exempt status may be under an additional IRS or federal law requirement to make certain records available to the general public upon request.  That is something way outside the scope of this forum.
