...自律、竞争与监管——美、加非营利组织管理制度考察 民政部民间组织管理局 杨岳 许昀 2005年11月13日至25日,民政部民间组织管理局组织考察团对美国、加拿大非营利组织管理制度进行了考察。考察团以民政部民间组织管理局杨岳副局长为团长,包括部分省级民间组织登记管理机关的官员。考察团访问了美、加两国的有关政府机关、非营利组织和研究机构,就非营利组织的注册登记制度、监督管理体制、内部治理和社会监督等情况进行了广泛的交流。通过考察,我们了解了美、加两国非营利组织管理制度的一些基本情况,接触到了先进的管理经验,得到了一些启示,在此做简要总结。 一、美、加非营利组织管理制度的基本情况 (一)法律背景 由于在法律制度上同属英美法系并且都采用联邦制政治体制,美、加两国在非营利组织管理制度上具有很多相同之处。 一方面,两国在非营利组织管理方面都没有专门、系统的法典,非营利组织管理制度主要是基于宪法、公司法和税法。在美国,联邦宪法明确了公民享有言论、结社、宗教等方面的自由,政府保证这些自由不受侵犯。加拿大宪法主要由各个不同历史时期的宪法性文件构成,其中包括1982年加拿大议会通过并由英国女王批准的《加拿大宪法法案》。作为《加拿大宪法法案》重要组成部分的《权利与自由宪章》将结社与和平集会的自由同言论自由、宗教信仰自由一起列为公民的基本自由。对非营利组织的登记和管理所依据的法律主要是公司法和税法,经有关部门注册的非营利组织可以取得法人资格,并有权向联邦税务部门申请免税资格,免税资格要件联邦税法有详细规定。 另一方面,由于采用联邦制体制,宪法在联邦与州(在加拿大为“省”)之间进行了权力划分。各州(或省)政府具有规范教育、医疗、地方基础建设等方面的权力,而税收权力属于联邦政府。因此,成立非营利组织可以根据各州(或省)法律注册登记,但是申请免税资格需经由联邦税务机关审查批准。 (二)注册登记 美、加两国关于非营利组织注册登记的规定大致相同,注册程序分为两步:第一步,在州(或省)有关部门注册为具有法人资格的非营利组织;第二步,向联邦税务机关申请为具有免税资格的非营利组织。 在美国,注册非营利组织是在公司法和税法等有关法律规定下进行的,具体方法各州不尽相同。非营利组织可以自由选择是否注册,不注册的不具有法人资格,不能享受免税待遇。注册由州务卿办公室批准,然后由州司法部进行注册登记,颁发法人证书。州务卿办公室对非营利组织的章程进行审定,要求章程载明:(1)所有经营服务收入全部用于宗旨相关的事业;(2)机构终止时将全部剩余财产转交同类组织;(3)机构董事长、秘书长的产生方式,举行会议的时间、地点及方式。美国的非营利组织可以采取非营利公司、非公司社团以及信托组织三种形式。任何一种形式的非营利组织,只要宗旨合法,章程符合上述规定,一般都可以注册。 ......

...How Is Building a Brand in a Business-to-Business Context Diffrent from Doing so in the Consumer Market? Building a strong brand that is able to set a company apart from other business is always an important job. However depending on who the intended client is determines how the company will build their brand. A brand is defined as a name, term, sign, symbol, or design, or any combination to identify goods and services of a seller or group of sellers. (2007) According to Walter Landor, founder of the Landor Associates, the world’s leading brand consulting firm; a brand is a promise that the company will provide satisfaction and quality. (Burgess, C) While many things in branding are the same, building a brand that supports brand to brand, B2B, or brand to customer, B2C, sales has slight differences. In B2B branding, a focus will be made on making a strong connection with the client business in order to make their brand seen as the top choice and safe to do business with. In order to do this, the brand will be built around making strong and personal relationships with the customer to become the go-to source. Instead of mass marketing and small ads, B2B branding requires that the business be willing to accept the time to completely educate the professional buyers about the brand. These professional buyers are used because they are well informed about the needs and goals of the purchase, and focus on purchasing a product that allows them to achieve higher......

Mario: Could I guessed they would do that for one apple? When there were millions of them? We were hauling them to the warehouse. I saw one roll out of a broken crate. It was that big. Suddenly, I found myself putting it in my lunch bag. Do you remember that day I took our little girl out for a walk? On our way home we passed a grocery store that sold "delicious" apples at seventy centavos each. She wanted me to buy one for her but I did not have seventy centavos. She cried. So, when I saw this apple roll out of crate, I thought that Tita would love to have it. Gloria: We're not rich. We can live without apples. Mario: Why? Did God create apple trees to bear fruit for the rich alone? Didn't He create the whole world for everyone? Gloria: So, for a measly apple, you lose a job! Filching an apple that's too small a reason to kick a poor man out a work. You should ask them to give you a second chance, Mario. Mario: They won't do that.

Business Is Business

...The purpose of business is to provide people with a product or service and we all understand that businesses have those to whom it is responsible, whether it is the stock/shareholder or the consumer. Providing a service or making something is very black or white in the area of product or service responsibilities, where it becomes grey is in the area of social responsibility. Who would have ever dreamed that the same Ford Motor Company that destroyed thousands upon thousands of acres of rain forest in the in the jungles of South America in the early Nineteenth Century in search of an abundance of rubber would today be a champion of eco-fuels and rain forest preservation? Businesses are perceptive and have the fundamental understanding that in order to survive in today’s hypersensitive, politically correct society, they must be perceived as guardians of “what’s in” rather than concentrating on their bottom line because in many instances, that perception ends up affecting their bottom line. God created the universe and all that’s in it for us to enjoy and utilize. In Genesis, we learn that after the fall and the realization of our nakedness that Adam and Eve utilized animal skins in order to cover their bodies due to shame. They actually had to do some “dirty work” in order to make the skins into clothing. This alone tells us that having dominion over the animals and the things of the earth means we are to utilize them as needed but at the same time to be good stewards. ......

... . . . . The Neilsen Rating System The Neilsen Ratings System began as a radio rating system by Arthur Neilsen. The Neilsen Rating System evolved to eventually analyze television data. In 1950, Nielsen moved to television, developing a ratings system using the methods he and his company had developed for radio (Levin, 2006). That method has since become the primary source of audience measurement information in the television industry around the globe. Measuring Ratings The Neilsen Rating system is characterized as a syndicated data provider. A syndicated data provider tracks the change of one or more measures over time, usually in a given industry (Cooper, 2006). Neilsen Rating system makes a very lucrative business for the data that is presented to the entertainment industry, most importantly television. The primary system of measuring data for the Neilsen Rating system is by gathering data and the industry pays up to millions of dollars for periodic reports of data. Devices are used to gather the information. These devices gather the viewing habits of the home and transmit the information nightly to Nielsen through a "Home Unit" connected to a phone line. . . The technology-based home unit system is meant to allow market researchers to study television viewing habits on a minute to minute basis, seeing the exact moment viewers change channels or turn off their TV (Segal, 2007).
