Due to the ongoing fight to reduce the impacts of COVID-19, the Corporations and Charities Division has modified in-person services available if you are not able to complete your filing online. All in-person service requests must be received by 4pm daily.

Emergency changes to nonprofit corporation meetings

The Governor has amended the original emergency proclamation to include provisions for nonprofits to conduct meetings and to have directors and members vote remotely, whether or not the nonprofit’s bylaws or Articles of Incorporation specifically allow for remote meetings.

Please note: The Office of the Secretary of State does not advise or regulate how corporation meetings are held. Those are internal operations interpreted by legal professionals.

You can research the options available by reviewing the Amended Proclamation 20-51.7. We encourage you discuss any impacts with your legal advisors.
