Being a shareholder often comes with certain perks, such as the receipt of dividends. But being a shareholder also means you will be called upon to vote on decisions of the corporation. If you are unable to perform that duty and you need someone to “stand in” for you, you may be able to appoint a proxy voter and through a Shareholder Proxy Agreement. 

 

Using this Shareholder Proxy Agreement allows the shareholder to appoint someone to act on their behalf for decisions that will be made at upcoming meeting(s). Before you appoint a proxy, refer to the operating agreement and/or the bylaws of the corporation to verify that the appointment of proxy voters is allowed.
