Dear Mr. Nolan:
Thanks for reluctantly inviting me to the board meeting in two weeks..
It is my understanding that San Francisco's nonprofit accountability and sunshine laws require all charities receiving more than $250,000 must open at least two of their board of directors' meetings to the public.
I believe the local statutes also call for wide publicizing of the two board meetings to the clients, donors and general public through postings on the recipient group's web site, letters of invitation published in community papers and informing the city's Sunshine Task Force in writing.
Please tell me how if you have followed these provisions of the statutes and are duly informing and inviting everyone to your group's June 21 board meeting.
