Written notice to a domestic LLC, or a foreign LLC authorized to transact business in this state, may be addressed to its registered agent at its registered office or to the domestic or foreign LLC or its secretary, if any, at its principal executive office (or to a designated mailing address such as a post office box if the United States postal service does not deliver to the principal executive office).
