Due to the ongoing fight to reduce the impacts of COVID-19, the Corporations and Charities Division office has some in-person and curbside services available if you are not able to complete your filing online. Phone and processing hours will be temporarily reduced to 8am-5pm Monday through Thursday. No work will be performed on Fridays until after August 7, or further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.

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 20-05. We encourage you discuss any impacts with your legal advisors.
