Did you know that the Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) has experience giving incorporation advice to other hackerspaces? They have an upcoming free legal advice cafe that I will be attending with my personal questions regarding board nominations and other topics I'm curious about related to Sudo Room's incorporation. Join me!*

Awesome Vicky!
I can't make it, but here are some questions:
Are the any structures for incorporation that do not require any hierarchy, such as a board, but still has liability protections for the members or co-owners?

We would be the drawbacks to forming a non-profit corporation where all members are members of the board?

For a non-hierarchical non-profit member-driven organization such as sudo room, would there be any advantages to being a California co-op where a share costs a very low amount (e.g. $1) and all members have shares? As apposed to becoming a traditional corporation.
