Re: Accessibility Issues with LLC Operating Agreement

Our group is attempting to tackle this issue by accepting our local
jurisdictions base agreement and then just recording areas where we
disagree and want to change. This way over time as the local laws change,
we will automatically be covered by any added future provisions. Of course,
we will still need to review changes to see if our list of changes is still
appropriate. This makes our document much smaller and the changes we enact
are clear rather then being hidden in some long document.

We have not yet registered our bylaws, and are not sure if our controlling
organization will accept this method of doing bylwas, but the worst case is
that we will have to make a version of the generic bylaws and make our
edits in that document.
