Each member of AAUW California will be receiving a legal notice in September pertaining to the hearing with the State of California to reclassify our status from a mutual benefit to a public benefit corporation. This is a document that was legally required and vetted by the Office of Corporations for the hearing. As stated in the notice the hearing will take place in San Francisco on September 25. Our attorney will be handling the hearing on our behalf and will keep us informed of any unexpected developments, none of which we are anticipating.
This hearing is the next step in the process to obtain the re-classification since we were unable to obtain a unanimous pro vote from the full membership, as required by California Corporate Regulations, to make the change to a public benefit corporation. Once a favorable decision comes from the Office of Commissions we will proceed with updating and re-filing our governing documents with the appropriate government entities.
