1 InfraGard Louisiana Members Alliance Proposed Corporate Reorganization For Acadiana, Baton Rouge & New Orleans Chapters To Minimize Unnecessary Overhead & Improve Statewide Outreach June 2011

2 Multiple Chapters: Why Change? Avoid Unnecessary Duplicative Chapter Overhead – D&O coverage – Corporate/IRS compliance – INMA standards (legal advisor, web sites, etc.) Avoid Unnecessary Duplicative FBI Overhead – Monitor, report, dig out multiple Chapters – Chapter shortcomings (e.g., website) multiply FBI overhead and waste scarce FBI resources Reduce Barriers to New Local Groups & Unaffiliated Individuals Statewide Bureau/INMA now suggesting Statewide Chapter/Local Sub-Chapters June 2011InfraGard Louisiana Proposal2

3 Don’t Throw Out the Baby! What We Don’t Want to Lose Local Group Ability to Locally Meet and Have their Own Leaders, Agendas, Funds What We Want to Gain InfraGard (v. FBI) Maintenance of Local Groups-Conserve FBI Resources Statewide Outreach to New Groups & Unaffiliated Individuals: Reduce Barriers to Involvement Statewide Collaboration—Capture & Reuse Local Meetings, SIGs, Activities; Bigger Population to support existing activities Greater visibility for InfraGard with State Government Easy-to-Use/Share Technologies – Website with Locally-Controlled Pages – Webex/Go To Meeting – Secure Facebook Groups June 2011InfraGard Louisiana Proposal3

4 Proposed Structure “Virtual” ILMA Statewide Chapter; Sub-Chapters function as now, but with less overhead ILMA Directors elected by all InfraGard Louisiana members from Statewide Slate ILMA Officers elected by ILMA Directors from Statewide slate Virtual ILMA Meetings of Directors & Officers Sub-Chapters hold their own elections & meetings, control their own funds June 2011InfraGard Louisiana Proposal4

5 Existing Chapter/ILMA Relationship Proposal: ILMA Statewide Chapter with Sub-Chapters in New Orleans and, at their option, Acadiana & Baton Rouge Use NO Corporate Charter/IRS status as vehicle for reorg (if in good standing, can be Acadiana or BR Charter/IRS status) Each Sub-Chapter operates pretty much as presently, but with reduced overhead ILMA Officers and Directors elected from statewide slates ILMA has four principal functions: – Handle corporate overhead statewide (Corporate, IRS, D&O, website, etc.) – Provide commonly available technology platforms – Maintenance/support of existing local groups – Outreach to new groups & individuals statewide June 2011InfraGard Louisiana Proposal5

6 Key Details Each Sub-Chapter has a bank account its leaders control, with copy of Statement available to ILMA for accounting purposes ILMA will need some nominal level of funding to cover shared overhead costs (D&O policy, PO Box, Corporate fees, Congress & possibly other travel, Webex account, etc., etc.) – Propose New Orleans Sub-Chapter outsource existing overhead costs & donate $1,000 to cover startup June 2011InfraGard Louisiana Proposal6

7 Implementation Straw vote by Acadiana, Baton Rouge and New Orleans Chapters re participation Form Statewide Working Group to develop Amended/Restated N.O. (or other) Corporate Charter & Bylaws, including Officer and Director Details, for Chapter Vote Existing Chapters Vote to Affiliate with ILMA as Sub- Chapters; Affiliating Sub-Chapters terminate separate corporate existence ILMA Directors elected from Statewide slate; ILMA Officers elected by ILMA Directors from Statewide slate Sub-Chapters operate pretty much as now June 2011InfraGard Louisiana Proposal7
