This Organizational Consent document allows you to get everyone on the same page without getting them all into the same room. Remember to review templates of resolutions that were written by other boards for similar purposes. Find a good template to help you get started, but keep it flexible enough to serve the true purpose of the resolution. At first glance, reading a board resolution is intimidating because of the formal language. In fact, once you know what components make up a board resolution, they are very easy to write. Before getting started, take a look at some other resolutions that other entities have written to get an idea of the format and language. A few people working together will be able to write one up in short order. It is important to state clearly what are the decisions made by the Board of Directors in the resolution. As a general rule all records, resolutions, and minutes of your corporation should be kept in your Corporate Minute Book maintained for no less than six years. Occasionally a Shareholder inspects the corporate books and records to ensure the corporation is operating in its best interests.
