DCS Bylaws

The Forming of the DeLorean Car Show Charter/Bylaws

In order to be given Non Profit and Tax exempt status we needed to follow some strict guidelines set forth by the IRS. In it's former form, DeLorean Car Show did not fit into the categories very well, so it was necessary for us to form a “club” in order to conform to that category and to be granted the related benefits. The rules are really quite simple and it allows us to use the simpler tax filing system. We are grateful for all the help the IRS gave us.

Below is the list of bylaws.  This is the legal sounding stuff that is required, but we think that it also provides a good idea of what we want - for DeLorean owners to be able to gather and have a good time.

The Bylaws:

  1. To put on a high quality car show that educates and brings awareness to the DeLorean Automobile for its historic value in the history of the automobile. This event will be the main event called DeLorean Car Show “___” where _____ is the location of the show I.E. DeLorean Car Show “Florida”.
  2. To provide a common goal of Fellowship and commingling by holding interesting and informative meetings and events at least 4 times a year to further the socializing of the membership.
