Rhode Island Amends Nonprofit Corporation Law

Incorporating Services, Ltd. (Incserv) is an active member of the National Public Records Research Association (NPRRA).  One of the many benefits of this membership is the continuous flow of information from other members regarding changes in policy, law and processing of public records searching and filing across the US. We received the below information from the NPRRA.

Rhode Island House Bill 5647 and Senate Bill 618, effective June 19, 2017, amend the nonprofit corporation law by substituting the supporting document to be filed upon foreign qualification from a copy of the corporation’s charter to a status certificate (e.g. Certificate of Existence).

The State advised that they will be revising their form next week to reflect the new requirement.  However, the new requirement will be enforced immediately.

The Bills may be accessed through the following links.
