Once a business files the certificate of formation with state authorities to establish an LLC, the LLC members hold an initial organizational meeting to complete its formation. Before that meeting occurs, each member should be notified in advance and the meeting scheduled after the notification period.
If it would be beneficial to the LLC or the members to forgo the notification period and expedite the holding of the meeting, the members can all consent to do so with a Waiver of Notice of Initial Member Meeting. Even if the members informally agree to hold a meeting without notice, it's essential to sign a waiver of notice to avoid future misunderstandings.
A Waiver of Notice of Initial Member Meeting is a legally-binding document committing the signatories to opt-out of the typical notice period required before an initial organizational meeting occurs for a limited liability company. Typically, such a meeting follows a notice period, as stated in state regulations or the LLC's bylaws. A waiver annuls the notice period for that particular meeting.
Without the agreement of all shareholders or officers whose presence is required at the organizational meeting or their subsequent agreement to the decisions, the meeting will not be valid. In many cases, the initial meeting is only a matter of formality. A Waiver of Notice of Initial Member Meeting is an excellent way to expedite the process of an LLC's formation.
Depending on your state, a Waiver of Notice of Initial Member Meeting may also be known as:
Initial Member Meeting Notice Waiver
LLC Organizational Meeting Notice Waiver
Waiver of Notice of LLC Organizational Meeting
Primarily, LLCs wanting to quickly finalize the formalities involved in starting the company use a Waiver of Notice of Initial Member Meeting. Once the waiver is executed, the meeting can take place immediately without further delays.
Furthermore, members of an LLC who don't want or need to be heavily involved in the formation process request a waiver to reduce the amount of paperwork they receive. Without a waiver, each member must receive a formal notice for the meeting before it takes place that requires their approval.

To be legally valid, the Waiver of Notice of Initial Directors Meeting needs to be signed by all the members present at the meeting and waiving their right to a formal notice. The signatures do not need to be notarized or witnessed. However, it's a good idea to sign it in the presence of a notary public since any business conducted at the initial organizational meeting could be invalidated if the waiver is successfully challenged at a later date.
Once signed, filed a copy of the Waiver of Notice of Initial Member Meeting with any other company records. It's recommended to keep the Waiver of Notice of Initial Member Meeting and similar documents for at least seven years (or for the company's entire lifetime if possible). Distribute a signed copy to each of the members who sign the waiver for their records.
The Waiver of Notice of Initial Member Meeting does not need to be filed with any state or federal authority or recorder.
The basic formalities of a company are discussed and determined during an organizational meeting. It typically follows a standard agenda along with any additional points related to the specifics of the company.
The members don’t need to hold the meeting in person but need to sign off on the decisions made during the meeting. Usually, the points discussed include reviewing and accepting the articles of incorporation, electing corporation officers, adopting a banking resolution, and other administrative tasks germane to the corporation’s formation.
Typically, no. Once the waiver is signed by the members, the LLC will not issue notices at all and there is no notice period. However, with the approval of the other members of the LLC, the time and date of the meeting can be postponed under the right circumstances.
Whenever the members of an LLC meet to discuss important business decisions, each member needs to be notified in advance. Waivers of notice for organizational meetings can be used to expedite that notice period if it is necessary or conducive to the operational success of the company.
