UT Law Student Presentation
Thanks to a connection through the University of Tennessee (UT) Center for Profitable Agriculture, Rooted Here was able to work with four UT Law students, William Calla, Shravan Malaney, James Hargis, and Meagan Davis, to determine the best tax structure for our organization. The students met with members of the Rooted Here Board during the semester to learn about the organization and our needs and desires. They then presented their recommendations last Wednesday. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend that presentation. Full text of their recommendations are posted on our website.
To summarize, they recommended that Rooted Here become a Limited Liability Company. We are incredibly grateful for this collaboration and the excellent work of the students. Our next steps will be to work with our members to determine how we will use these recommendations and proceed. If you are interested in working with us on this, please consider becoming a member!
