The new law will permit corporations (profit, non-profit and special purpose) to use electronic communications (1) to send notices to and receive notices from directors, shareholders and members, (2) to solicit and receive written consents, and (3) to convene director, shareholder and member meetings. The Corporations Committee worked with the Nonprofit and Unincorporated Organizations Committee, the Partnerships and Limited Liability Companies Committee and the Cyberspace Law Committee in drafting the bill, which was carried by State Sen.
