Amending the Laudholm Trust Articles of Incorporation

The Laudholm Trust Board of Directors has approved updates to its original 1982 Articles of Incorporation. In summary, the three updates will 1) place the mission statement (adopted in 2007) within the Articles of Incorporation; 2) increase the number of allowable board members from 5 to 20; and 3) revise the meaning of current member to include “anyone making a minimum donation within the past 18 months” rather than 12 months.

Maine law mandates that amendments to Articles of Incorporation be adopted at a public meeting of the membership, after public notice, through a vote of members. A majority is required to amend the Articles.
