NMPRC version:
"EDUCATION & PROMOTION OF SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT"

Articles of Incorporation, per NMPRC recieved 2004/05/24:
"The Corporation is organized and at all times shall be operated, on a
non-profit basis exclusive for the advancement and education and
promotion of software development in an open environment"

Those both seem nebulous and boiler-plate, but thanks anyway.
It was just the dangling reference that was bugging me.
