Generally, Massachusetts 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. A corporation maintains its bylaws at its principal executive office and is not required to file them with the commonwealth. United Agent Services will provide customized bylaws for your Massachusetts incorporation based on the operation requirements that you specify.
Massachusetts law requires that either the incorporators or board of directors adopt initial bylaws for the corporation.
Unless specified by the articles of incorporation, director qualifications may be listed in the bylaws.
Officers may be appointed by the board of directors if not already listed in the bylaws, and duly appointed officers may appoint other officers if authorized by the board or the bylaws. Every corporation must have a president, a treasurer and a secretary. A secretary or assistant secretary has the responsibility of preparing minutes of director and shareholder meetings and for authenticating corporate records. Any two or more officers may be held by the same person.
