In-Depth Incorporation FAQ

What is an organizational meeting?

After the articles of organization are filed and the business is officially formed, the company should hold the organizational meeting. All the proposed directors, officers, and shareholders should be in attendance. At this meeting, the people in attendance lay the foundation for the company's operation. The initial corporate matters should be addressed at the meeting, and "minutes" should be taken to record the results.

The matters that need to be addressed at the organizational meeting include officially electing the directors, officially adopting the articles of incorporation, adopting a set of corporate bylaws, electing officers, approving the corporate seal, and issuing the company's stock certificates.
