A Corporate Resolution document is used to record any major decision made by shareholders or a board of directors during a meeting.
Notes: Assuming that the laws governing the corporation (e.g. relevant statutes and your corporation’s bylaws) permit for a certain corporate action to be taken by unanimous written consent of the board of directors, the following template language set forth in the document entitled “UNANIMOUS WRITTEN CONSENT TO ACTION OF THE DIRECTORS OF…” may be useful reference material. Within the [brackets] below, we have included some template language which may or may not be suitable, depending on the situation.
If the corporation holds an actual full board meeting, then the corporation may wish to reference the resolution document immediately below the Unanimous Consent template, namely the template entitled “MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE DIRECTORS OF…”, whereas it may be more applicable to the given situation.
We strongly recommend consulting with legal counsel in order to make sure that any template legal document is proper, legal, and/or in your corporation’s best interests. Do not use any template document without proper legal guidance. We take no responsibility for the use or misuse of these template documents, and expressly disclaim any and all warranties, express or implied, as it relates to these reference materials.
