The Q Group is a Delaware registered not-for-profit corporation and recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c) 6 not-for-profit corporation (not a charity). The organization is governed by a 20-person Board of Directors who define the organization’s goals and objectives as well as provide fiduciary oversight administration and operations. Through annual fees, the Q Group members provide the finances to support all the organization’s activities. The Q Group programs and services are managed by an Executive Director using “independent contractors” who work autonomously. To ensure that Q Group programs continue to reflect the highest levels of scholarship and relevancy to the membership, an Advisory Council has been established.
