Notice to Government Employees & Representatives: Food & Refreshments
At Federal Allies Institute functions, FAI provides food and refreshments and considers this a normal business courtesy. Some Federal, State, or Local Government Agencies do not permit their employees to accept food or refreshments.
If your agency requires, or if you desire, you may pay the fair market value for the food and refreshments you consume. A receipt will be provided upon request.
Notice to Government Employees & Representatives - FAI Training & Education
At Federal Allies Institute events, FAI or its participants conducts marketing presentations, executive briefings, product exhibitions and demonstrations, seminars and other sessions to familiarize members and prospective members, customers and potential customers with solutions to problems. In accordance with established FAI practices, some of these sessions are provided at no charge.
Some government agencies permit acceptance of this training by employees; other agencies may not. You should ascertain whether your agency's standards of conduct regulations permit you to attend this FAI-sponsored education or training session, as it is not FAI's intent or desire that either you, your organization, or FAI violate any statutes or regulations. Under FAI's established business practices, the fair market value for non-billable FAI education or training session is zero, as it is normally provided to members, government officials and prospective members on a no-charge basis. The offer of FAI training or education made in conjunction with this notice is void where prohibited by federal, state or local government statute or regulation.
Heard at Washington Days Conference
"Usually when you go to the big organization events there's just tons of people and you don't get an opportunity to share. You find your speakers are on a schedule with maybe a half hour to talk. There's little time for questions and answers. When I went to those kinds of venues I really left without getting my questions answered or didn't get to talk to the people I wanted. At Federal Allies I get to talk one-on-one for long periods of time and that's just fantastic."
You Should Know...
All nonprofits are to file a Form 990 with the IRS each year.
Federal Allies Institute files an IRS Form 990 each year. Our first filing was for 2009.
Once reviewed by the IRS each Form 990 is then scanned and made into a pdf file and made available for your review, at no cost, at www.GuideStar.org.
It usually takes several months before the most recent Form 990 makes its way onto GuideStar, but if a nonprofit is over two years old, it should have at least one posted, and one posted for each following year.
You can review the Form 990 of any nonprofit that you wish. Form 990s detail all association revenue and expenses including top employees salaries.
At first glance, many organizations with association sounding names are assumed by an unsuspecting public to be IRS reviewed nonprofits, but in fact actually are not.
The ones that are not, do not file a Form 990.
As a matter of public record and your due dilligence, you should feel at ease to request IRS Certification of nonprofit status from any nonprofit with which you interact. This is a one-page document. This document is published by the IRS and sent to each nonprofit for their safekeeping in order to show the public. This type of public request is anticipated by professionally operated nonprofits.
