Alaska corporate bylaws are the written rules of a corporation that govern the day-to-day operations, management structure, and shareholder interests. The corporate bylaws are usually created once the articles of incorporation have been filed with the Alaska Department of Commerce, but the bylaws do not need to be submitted to a government body. The document is an internal, administrative form that allows the entity to maintain organization, resolve internal and external disputes more quickly, and ensure the directors and officers perform their obligations. Furthermore, it outlines when meetings will be held, how shares will be issued, and when voting will take place.
Bylaws required? No, the state of Alaska does not require a corporation to have written bylaws, although doing so remains highly recommended.
