Generally, Illinois incorporation bylaws are written to manage the corporation’s business and to conduct the corporation’s affairs so long as the bylaws do not conflict with the articles of incorporation. An Illinois incorporation maintains its bylaws at its principal executive office and is not required to file them with the state. United Agent Services will provide customized bylaws for your corporation based on the operation requirements that you specify.

The incorporators or board of directors must adopt initial bylaws for the corporation.

Director Information

The bylaws may fix the number of directors (except for initial directors, which are determined by the incorporators) and prescribe qualifications for directors that are not inconsistent with the articles of incorporation.

Officer Information

Officers may be listed in the bylaws or elected by the board, in compliance with the bylaws. Additionally, the secretary has authority to certify the bylaws, resolutions and other corporate documents. If provided in the bylaws, any officer may hold more than one office in the corporation.
