ExposNation officially becomes a non-profit corporation
Grassroots organization flooded with collaborative offers
Montreal, Quebec, September 26, 2013 – ExposNation, a grassroots organization run by a dedicated committee of volunteers, confirmed that it officially became a not-for-profit corporation on September 16th, 2013. The organization is now recognized under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act, with the corporate name Nos Amours Baseball and the corporation number 863532-3. This incorporation was facilitated by Adam Saskin and law firm Spiegel Sohmer, and James Miller and accounting firm Schwartz Levitsky Feldman.
“As we continue to receive and secure offers of support and partnership, it became clear that the only way to advance the cause of returning Major League Baseball to Montreal was to be completely transparent and accountable. With this new structure, ExposNation has attained a new level of appeal and credibility, which in turn has allowed us to expand our committee of advisors and voting members to include prominent Montreal baseball and business figures,” said Matthew Ross, ExposNation Founder and Chairman.
In the near future, ExposNation will launch a fan club to both galvanize the Montreal baseball fan base, and to raise funds to hold Montreal events, including with former players. In addition, ExposNation is hard at work on planning a spring event in Montreal.
We did not want to launch a fan club until we could offer ExposNation supporters real value and transparency. We want them to know that their hard-earned money is going towards the mission of bringing back the Expos.
