Figure out how to get an exemption for New York State law that board members must be 18+ ← Laws require that we have only one director at least 16 years old. When we work on the Policies and Procedures document, we’ll figure out a way for more than one youth leader to have consent rights
Ask IntegrateNYC for how they do it ← IntegrateNYC didn’t pursue an exemption. We’ll need to ask The Lawyer’s Alliance.
