Amendment to Corporate Bylaws Packet

This kit provides tools and guidelines for amending your corporations Bylaws.

Amendments to the corporate Bylaws may sometimes be required by changing business circumstances.  However, in general, amendments should be infrequent and reserved only for situations that require a substantial change in the manner in which the corporation conducts its business.  

The procedure used in this packet for amendments to the bylaws provides that the board of directors may amend the bylaws, subject to approval by the shareholders, without notification of the state.



NOTE:  While there are generally few state-specific requirements for the content of corporate bylaws, there may be specific guidelines or restrictions in your state.  Please consult your Secretary of States website to determine whether any of these restrictions may be applicable in your case.
