Alaska LLC Operating Agreements (2)

An Alaska LLC operating agreement allows a company to set rules for the entity such as its management, registered agent, and record its owners. In an LLC, ownership is listed as a percentage (%) that requires all owners (members) should be mentioned in full (totaling 100%).

In Alaska, it is written that the “articles of organization may restrict or eliminate the power of the members,” therefore all members in the operating agreement should be listed in the articles.
