§933. Articles of nonprofit conversion

1. Articles of nonprofit conversion.  After a plan of nonprofit conversion providing for the conversion of a domestic business corporation, referred to in this section as the "corporation," to a domestic nonprofit corporation has been adopted and approved as required by this Act, articles of nonprofit conversion must be executed on behalf of the corporation by an officer or other duly authorized representative of the corporation. The articles must set forth:
A. The name of the corporation immediately before the filing of the articles of nonprofit conversion and, if that name does not satisfy the requirements of the Maine Nonprofit Corporation Act or the corporation desires to change its name in connection with the conversion, a name that satisfies the requirements of the Maine Nonprofit Corporation Act; and [2001, c. 640, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 2001, c. 640, Pt. B, §7 (AFF).]
B. A statement that the plan of nonprofit conversion was duly approved by the shareholders in the manner required by this Act and the articles of incorporation. [2001, c. 640, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 2001, c. 640, Pt. B, §7 (AFF).]

2. Provisions of articles of nonprofit conversion.  The articles of nonprofit conversion must either contain all the provisions that the Maine Nonprofit Corporation Act requires to be set forth in articles of incorporation of a domestic nonprofit corporation with any other desired provisions permitted by the Maine Nonprofit Corporation Act or have attached articles of incorporation that satisfy the requirements of the Maine Nonprofit Corporation Act. In either case, provisions that would not be required by the Maine Nonprofit Corporation Act to be included in restated articles of incorporation of a domestic nonprofit corporation may be omitted.
[ 2003, c. 344, Pt. B, §83 (AMD) .]
