The Articles 30 of Association of our company require directors retire at the company's AGM and the retired directors can be re-appointed.In previous year , we write a directors' minutes to call an AGM, to note the retire of directors according to 30 Articles of Association & being re-appointed, to note the re-appointment of auditors and to note the available for approval of audited accounts in the forthcoming AGM and sent the related notice. In AGM, we approve the audited account, the directors retired and be re-appointed, and re-appoint the auditor until the conclusion of the next AGM.I want to know the exact wordings in the minutes/ resolutions of how to write the directors' resolutions and shareholder's resolutions which we had done as in the AGM of previous to pass the above issues.

I was (I resigned over this issue) on the board of directors

I was (I resigned over this issue) on the board of directors of a local 501c3 table tennis club.  during our annual general meeting a group of 8 candidates (the current secretary was not one of the approved candidates, see below) for the upcoming board of directors was approved.  it was agreed that members were to have one week to vote for up to 5 candidates for the board.a few days after the meeting, the secretary with apparent approval from the president, decided that one candidate should not be allowed to run because his annual dues had not been paid.  the candidate not allowed to run is an elderly irascible gentleman in ill health with a history of bad blood with the secretary.  I immediately offered and did pay the elderly gentlman's dues.voting commenced immediately after the meeting.  the candidates were listed with letters a-h adjacent to their names.  we voted by writing the letters associated with each of 5 candidates on a slip of paper and giving it to the president.mid week, the secretary forwarded a new candidate list to the membership with his name replacing the elderly gentleman's in the 'b' position.  as a setting board member, I protested this via email immediately and demanded a correction.  I was denied by the president and secretary and therefore resigned via email.the secretary is well healed and likely to have a large umbrella policy.  the elderly gentleman is not well healed and being an accepted member of the table tennis community is of inordinate value to his mental health.is there a case?

I thought I was getting referred to a specific attorney. I am wanting to resign from and LLC domiciled in Alabama. I live in Washington. I was under the impression we were working together to wrap up the business, but word has come to me that they really just want to restart without me. They are not being cooperative in winding up. I have been the banker and do assume that I will be responsible for paying off that debt, but I need to make sure I do what I need to in order to prevent any further tax liability or responsibilities for the LLC. I can't get the information required and would love to back date the resignation, take my debt, and go home. Official announcement of a wind up was provided interested parties on April 2 of this year.

In 2013 I received a full bankruptcy discharge and the

In 2013 I received a full bankruptcy discharge and the creditor has been violating the BR discharge,I attempted to reopen the BR case but the judge refused to open it for no valid reason. I have a Pro Se civil RICO case in federal court against the same creditor (a publicly traded bank) for otherreasons, the "other" reasons resulted in my bankruptcy but I did not make any bankruptcy claims in my RICO complaint. Currently, the bank has made a motion to dismiss the RICO action and I am working on a reply defending against dismissal. There has been a new revelation that the defendants in my RICO case has violated the BR discharge. Can I make a motion or request a hearing with the Fed. RICO Judge to hear the BR discharge violation or amend my complaint under the Entire Controversy Doctrine or do I have to reopen the bankruptcy case. Any suggestions?

My wife recently received her Cosmetologist License from

My wife recently received her Cosmetologist License from California's Department of Consumer Affairs / Board of Barbering and Cosmetology. I've read on LegalZoom that "if you are required to be licensed to practice your business in your state, you most likely need to form a Professional LLC." Is the above statement accurate? If not, why not? Can a cosmetologist licensed in California form an LLC to rent a booth to offer barbering services? Or does it need to be a PLLC?

If a vendor pays you direct deposit can they go into your

If a vendor pays you direct deposit can they go into your bank account and take the money out. I heard of employers doing that for overpayment, but what about us as subcontractors not employees. I am just worried cause we get our direct deposit Payment on the 28th. However, we have to move cause our owner doesn't want us getting deliveries at the house, so he will not renew lease as we haf agreed and thee are no other rentals here. We can not buy right now. At last minute We need to move to a house we own out of state, so can not give 30 days notice to the company we do work for. We are just worried they will take money because of this. Thanks
