  • An association of volunteer firefighters
  • A membership organization that a real-estate developer creates to maintain common areas for residents of a housing development
  • An organization that holds annual festivities celebrating regional traditions
  • An organization that supervises the operation of an airport that serves the public in an area with no other airport
