I'm most interested in best practices for structuring the organization, tips on administering meetings, etc. I think most of that information can be broad enough for all non-profits, but I would love any materials that talk specifically about political ones too.

Are there people out there looking for concepts to finance and/or start up restaurants? If so, how do I find them and present my idea to them?
