NONPROFIT CORPORATIONS: June 13, 2022 - CCFS is being updated to reflect changes to nonprofit corporation laws under RCW 24.03A. Currently, all nonprofit filings will be completed by paper forms while we work to provide online filing options. We are processing documents in the order received and there will be delays. If your documents were recently submitted, please disregard any automated late notices while we work to get all records updated on the website. Paper documents must be received in our office before their due date; once they have been entered into the system the record will reflect accurately. If you have any questions concerning this matter please let us know by using one of the methods available on the Contact Us page.

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 20-51.11. We encourage you discuss any impacts with your legal advisors.
