Bylaws and Minutes of Meetings

Bylaws is an important corporate document, serving as the "constitution" of the corporation. It defines various aspects or ownership and management of the corporation, as well as other aspects of corporation's existence. To properly establish, maintain and manage the affairs of the corporation directors and shareholders must meet periodically, and those meetings should be documented (minutes of meetings). Bylaws, minutes of all meetings, as well as other corporate documents, must be kept with your corporate records and are not filed with the state.

DC mandates all corporations to have bylaws, and properly maintain minutes of all meetings taking place. We can provide you with standard bylaws and minutes of initial meetings of directors and shareholders, as well as other important documents such as stock ledger and bills of sale of shares to initial shareholders.
