Governor Gives Sole Members the Boot

We previously reported on A.B. 10336-A (Paulin) / S.B. 8699 (Gallivan) (the “Bill”), which would amend Section 601(a) of the New York Not-for-Profit Corporation Law to raise the minimum number of members of a not-for-profit membership corporation from one to three.  The Bill was signed into law by Governor Cuomo on December 21, 2018.  It will go into effect on July 1, 2019.  New York not-for-profit corporations, and all organizations with New York not-for-profit affiliates, should review the legislation to determine whether any action is required.

We will continue to update this space with information regarding any developments on this new law and its impact.
