Let me be more clear on what my org. is about. I not only want to provide excellent swim lessons for our youth in low income families I also look to help provide a recruiting stage for HBCU's. I do need help with recruiting a board of directors and creating bylaws I do welcome any advice.

Hi Eric, My name is Kris Houchens and we run a not for profit in the Indianapolis area called Swimming 4 Everyone, Inc. We are planning to provide low cost learn to swim lessons in under represented areas of Indy in the fall of 2011. Contact me if you want to meet and discuss how we can work together in our area.
