Waiver Of Notice For Shareholder Special Meeting
A special shareholder meeting will usually be called without much notice. If there’s not enough time to give the notice required by state laws or corporate bylaws, all shareholders should sign a waiver of notice. The waiver ensures that all shareholders agree to hold the meeting and abide by the actions that take place. Below, we provide a free waiver of notice template for your special meeting of shareholders.

Why would I need a waiver of notice for a shareholder special meeting?
From time to time, shareholders will need to hold a special meeting. One of the biggest reasons for a special stockholder meeting is to oust a director from the board of directors. When this kind of problem arises, shareholders typically need to progress quickly.
If you have a feisty director on the board of directors—or worse yet, the director in question has become friends with some of the other shareholders—it will be imperative that you document the special shareholder meeting correctly and ensure there is no question as to the legitimacy of the decisions made. If you did not give the required notice before holding the meeting, you absolutely must ensure that all shareholders sign a waive of notice.
