    Example text

    Our advice goes double if you plan to consider and vote on any issues for which there may be disagreement. If dissident shareholders or directors believe you are trying to take action at a “secret meeting,” this will encourage controversy and tension. See Step 5, below. Who May Call Annual and Regular Meetings Regular or annual meetings of directors or shareholders are not legally required to be called, because they are already scheduled in the bylaws. The secretary of the corporation is normally designated to stay on top of annual meetings, but there is always a chance that he or she may forget to remind everyone that these meetings should be held.

    Special meetings of shareholders. Typically, special meetings of shareholders must be called by a majority vote of the board of directors, by a certain percentage of the voting shares of the corporation (often at least 10%), or by the president of the corporation. The corporate statutes of all states allow shareholders’ meetings to be called by the board of directors. All but a few states allow a set percentage of the shares—often 10%—to call a share­ holders’ meeting. About half the states specifically authorize the president to call a shareholders’ meeting.

    All shareholder notices should be in writing. The notice should state the time, place, and date of the upcoming meeting. The purpose of the meeting should also be placed in the notice (even though some states allow any business to be approved at annual shareholders’ meetings even if not stated in the notice). For special shareholders’ meetings, state law generally provides that only the matters listed in the notice for the meeting can be approved by the shareholders at the meeting. chapter 3 | before you hold your meeting—prep work and notice | 35 Example: Time Line, Incorporated, holds a special meeting of shareholders with the stated purpose of amending the articles of the corporation to increase the shares of the corporation.
