Organizers are for Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) what Incorporators are for Corporations.
An Organizer may be a person or business entity (depending on the state).
An Organizer is responsible for setting up the LLC and filing formation documents with the state agency responsible for registering an LLC - usually the Secretary of State.
All states require at least one Organizer.
Some states have specific minimum age requirements for each Organizer.
An Organizer generally relinquishes any power to the LLC Members once the LLC has been formed.
An Organizer may be a Member of the LLC but does not have to be.
Anyone authorized to act on behalf of the LLC may act as the Organizer.
By signing the Articles of Organization an Organizer is giving an oath that the information in the articles is true and correct.
There is no liability, on-going duties, or other significance attached with being the Organizer of a LLC.
The Organizer of a LLC is not the same as the Registered Agent of a LLC.
When you form an LLC online with us, we act as the Organizer and relinquish all power to you immediately when the LLC formation process is completed.
