HOW TO WRITE A MULTI-MEMBER AGREEMENT
Writing an Operating Agreement for your Multi-Member LLC is no small feat and should not be taken lightly. Any time a group of people decide to go into business together, it’s fun and exciting, but it’s also BUSINESS. An Operating Agreement will get everyone on the same page for every aspect of the business from ownership percentages to job assignments to financial authorizations and what happens if a member leaves. Everything possible should be included in this document. It is an internal document that does not get filed with any government entity, but notarizing it is a great idea and every member should have a notarized copy of this document for their records.
