If you don’t choose a business structure like a corporation or LLC, you’ll automatically be considered a sole proprietor (or partnership) by the IRS. However, operating as a sole proprietor, your personal assets are at risk.

Both the corporation and LLC separate you and your assets from the business, and provide other tax benefits.

The background check process is a criminal record search and is not a substitute for a club conducting appropriate pre‐employment screening of applicants. It is a club’s responsibility to screen potential employees. Clubs should carefully check references and prior employers, and consider requiring additional information such as driving records, before making a hiring decision.

Google Analytics – You need to set up Google Analytics on your website. This free tool enables you to collect data about how visitors interact with your website, who they are, where they are coming from and the actions they take.
