The Royal Oak Leprechauns operate as a 501 c3 nonprofit corporation under the parent company of USA Prime Michigan. The Leprechaun operations are managed by the Chairman of the Board of the official nonprofit to follow the guidelines and regulations required of a charitable organization. According to law, nonprofit organizations have no ownership but operate according to the guidelines of the board of directors and Chairman of the Board of the organization.
In order to bring some “ownership” or community involvement to our organization, the Royal Oak Leprechauns have set up three advisory boards. Nonprofit advisory boards are crucial to the success of our organization. The Leprechauns want to be engaged, informed, and efficient boards to make an impact in the community. We know our board of directors have many responsibilities and can’t cover all the research and knowledge needed to steer the organization. This is where our advisory boards come to the rescue! By supplementing specific areas where the board requires expertise, our advisory boards help our leaders make better decisions and get more done. Please click on the three different advisory boards and see which one will fit best with you. Each board has limited membership and specific requirements of its position. We look forward to working with you.
