Quick Update: U.S. SMC Secures Nonprofit Status

I wrote in February about the possibility of a Science Media Center (SMC) being created in the United States. One of the “next steps” discussed in that post was for the U.S. SMC to secure nonprofit status.

The SMC exploratory committee confirms that they have now received 501(c)(3) status as a nonprofit organization. Julia Moore, a volunteer spokesperson for the exploratory committee, says that this will allow the committee to “step up” its outreach and publicity efforts. So stay tuned.
