I have two contracts with a governmental organization, with nonprofit partners, and occasional work for 3 nonprofits. I worked in (not for) a nonprofit for 12 years.
I really don't want to but perhaps I should. I don't like administration. It takes time away from the real work. I don't like having employees -- I enjoy working with them but lousy at supervision. On the other hand, I am working as an independent contractor and probably should incorporate as a 501c3 for tax purposes and to have more independence to initiate projects.

No, I used to have one but I do it myself now. I am decent at it. I was on the board of a non-profit and the annual audit was ridiculously expensive given the amount of money we raised, and we never got the info we needed from the accountant. We had to shut down and things are a mess. So if the purpose of these workshops is to market accounting services, that would have been okay but I am very wary.
No. These are all good reasons not to incorporate!
I am a consultant to nonprofits, uncertain whether I should incorporate, but always have to find a non-profit to sponsor my grant proposals. I write proposals, conduct research and evaluation, coordinate projects, develop training, in criminology.
