NORML of Waco, Inc. announces cessation of operations
NORML of Waco, Inc. has announced that it will be ceasing all operations by the end of May, 2017.
The organization released a statement today about the decision.
NORML of Waco, Inc. is formally giving notice that it will be ceasing operations as of Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. cst.
The organization is ceasing operations due to the relocation and eventual resignation of two board members, leaving NORML of Waco, Inc. unable to legally operate in Texas. The previous two elections held for officers of the board did not see anyone seek any board positions, leading to the decision to not attempt to find replacement officers.
All officers of the board have submitted their resignations as of Tuesday, May 23, 2017 which will go into effect on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. cst.
On Tuesday, May 23, 2017 the NORML of Waco, Inc. Board of Directors met to discuss the dissolution of the non-profit organization. Votes were unanimously made to cease all further activity on any social media accounts, shut down any financial accounts, and begin the process of donating all assets to other chapters of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws around Texas. The minutes of this meeting will be made available to the public in electronic form on the organization’s Facebook page, and hard-copies will be kept by the officers of the board at the time of the meeting, and other parties of interest.
Notice will be given to the Texas Secretary of State that NORML of Waco, Inc. is ceasing operations and relinquishes its tax exempt status as of Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. cst.
Officers who participated in the meeting include:
Executive Director, Clifford “Clif” Deuvall
