Here is a good place to start: I don't think a Friends of Code4Lib would qualify as a 501(C)(4) or the other types of exempt organization, but possibly. 

That said, we will run into all the problems that have stymied these types of discussions in the past that are not legal problems but philosophical problems. It's not hard to fill out the 501(C)(3) application, but figuring out what to put in the boxes when you don't have a legal entity is difficult. So someone would have to incorporate the Friends organization. I am sure most of us work at places with Friends of the library and could see their bylaws to get some ideas.

I can start digging into the hows/whys sometime in early May and report back. If anyone has anything of interest (past C4L list convos, recommendations, etc), pass them along!
