To get useful ideas, locally, people can also go to other non-profit groups in their area. Co-ops of all kinds, as well as non-profit arts groups, museums, and charities of all kinds will have useful ideas in their stuff. In the past I've been able to collect these documents from friends and friends of friends. Additionally most of us know people who live in other communities of some sort or other. Personal requests to our friends and friends of friends is an excellent way to get access to a selection of documents and ideas. I'd suggest expanding the document collection, by anyone, beyond formal incorporation documents to include mission statements, philosophies, problem resolution mechanisms, etc. in use by groups. Particularly useful anytime you can get it is a series of documents for the same group that shows the revisions they made over the years as their needs changed and they sought to improve their formal statements. It's an excellent way to avoid repeating mistakes made by other groups. If you can combine this with talking to people who've been involved in the changes you'll benefit even more. The knowledge gained by going through incorporation is incredibly valuable to anyone about to go through it. I'd like to suggest that in addition to collecting documents, it would be really helpful to have a contact list of people knowledgeable about incorporation. That way people could get in touch with people near them, in their legal zone, etc. and share ideas and knowledge. I've found that doing this before crafting the document saves a lot of time and hassle and leads to a better finished document as well as a smoother incorporation process. Dave.
