States Allow Virtual Shareholder Meetings

Every state requires its domestic corporations to hold an annual shareholder meeting. In recent years, many, but not all states have authorized corporations to hold virtual meetings where shareholders participate in the meeting remotely.

Now, due to the COVID-19 virus and social distancing mandates which prohibit in-person meetings, several states have suspended the application of provisions within their statutes that have previously disallowed virtual shareholder meetings. The suspension of these provisions will remain in place for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis. Below is a list of several COVID-19 related Executive Orders, Proclamations and Bills authorizing the holding of virtual shareholder meetings that you can link to for details.
