Is Society of Cost Engineers for Profit?

Hello once again,
In recent days I’ve been asked why the Society of Cost Engineers is a “FOR PROFIT” LLC vs a “NON-PROFIT” organization. The answer is really pretty simple. SPEED TO MARKET. After discussions with the local Small Business Administration, lawyers, banking officials, it became obvious that a Single Owner LLC was the way to go. To set up a Non-profit organization you need to complete more paperwork, get the government to confirm your status, establish a board of directors, have all partners present and sign documents and a host of other hurdles. If and when the organization is dissolved, there are even more steps to go through. Under a SOLE OWNER LLC, I was able to get this started in just about a week.
We are and will strive to keep the cost down and therefor our membership dues as well. We are striving to make sure you see a benefit for your subscription. Please feel free to use the Contact Us to provide inputs and feedback. Let us know what you want to see and how we are doing.
