Articles of Incorporation

To minimize the legal and financial liability to members of the ISPD, the council of the ISPD has decided to fully incorporate the Society, instead of just keeping it registered as a tax-exempt organization.

Based on our research, we decided that the ISPD shall be incorporated in the state of Colorado in the USA, as it is one of the two states with laws most favorable for the incorporation of a not-for- profit entity such as the ISPD.
