Professional Solicitor and Fundraising Counsel Online Filing System

In May 2015, we expect to deploy an internet based registration and renewal system for professional solicitors and fundraising counsels (“System”).  The System allow you to register, renew your registration, and submit contracts online.  Solicitors will also submit surety bonds and end of solicitation campaign financial reports through the System.  The System has been programmed to be user-friendly and will remember an organization’s registration data so that when you renew your registration, you will only need to update your existing registration data if changes have occurred.  Another feature of the System is that it will automatically send emails to the registered organizations when bonds have expired and when it is time to renew the registration.

Because we are transitioning to an electronic System, we will be asking all currently registered solicitors and fundraising counsels to complete an initial registration for the period beginning after July 1, 2015 through the System once it is deployed in May 2015.  

Solicitors and fundraising counsels that need to submit a new registration must wait to register through the online System once it is deployed in May 2015.
