Forming a Journalism Cooperative in Georgia

Georgia's law limits the creation of cooperative organizations to those involved in the production of agricultural products (see O.G.C.A. § 2-10-83). You would therefore not be able to form a journalism cooperative in Georgia. However, you may be able to form a journalism organization with certain aspects of a cooperative under another business form, such as an LLC, a partnership, a corporation, or a nonprofit corporation. You should consult with a Georgia attorney for further information regarding your options for forming a business in Georgia.
