​​ArchiveD DOCUMENTS from our past

By-laws are like an official game plan on how a corporation is to be run and operated. Bylaws also state the rights and powers of the shareholders, directors and officers. Ordinarily, they’re not filed in any state’s corporate filing office. In practice, bylaws can be brief or lengthy. Operating agreements and partnership agreements, the LLC and LLP counterparts of corporate bylaws, are similar requirements. Contents vary but they typically include the following provisions:

  1. The time and place for meetings of officers, directors, and shareholders;
  2. How many directors, their tenure, and their qualifications;
  3. Title and compensation of the corporate officers;
  4. The fiscal year of the corporation;
  5. Who is responsible and how the bylaws are to be amended;
  6. Any rules on the approval of contracts, loans, checks, and stock certificates;
  7. Inspection of the corporate records book below.
