Universal Citation: IA Code § 504.704 (2018)


Action by written consent.

1. Unless limited or prohibited by the articles or bylaws of the corporation, action required or permitted by this chapter to be approved by the members of a corporation may be approved without a meeting of members if the action is approved by members holding at least eighty percent of the voting power. The action must be evidenced by one or more written consents describing the action taken, signed by those members representing at least eighty percent of the voting power, and delivered to the corporation for inclusion in the minutes or filing with the corporate records. A written consent may be revoked by a writing to that effect received by the corporation prior to the receipt by the corporation of unrevoked written consents sufficient in number to take corporation action.

2. If not otherwise determined under section 504.703 or 504.707, the record date for determining members entitled to take action without a meeting is the date the first member signs the consent under subsection 1.

3. A consent signed under this section has the effect of a meeting vote and may be described as such in any document filed with the secretary of state.

4. Written notice of member approval pursuant to this section shall be given to all members who have not signed the written consent. If written notice is required, member approval pursuant to this section shall be effective ten days after such written notice is given.
