First, I would like to congratulate you on asking a perfect law school question.
Second, the reason your are getting such open ended answers is because this response requires more information from you, and this forum WOULD NOT BE A PLACE TO DISCUSS, as there is no attorney client privilege.
1) There are questions about your Company, ranging from name to structure.
2) We need to see various documents from you, such as your articles and operations agreement (typically your By Laws/Operating Agreement/Partnership Agreement). Without seeing those, we cannot answer your question at all.
3) There are procedural steps that you would need to take.
The language to amend is easy. Everything in between requires a consult. Please contact a lawyer because the answer touches on so many topics that we simply cannot answer even in an email.
This response is for informational purposes only. It does not create an attorney-client relationship nor is intended to provide any legal advice or analysis. Please contact an attorney licensed in your state for a more detailed response, analysis and opinion.
Your answer depends on what provision of the charter that you are amending - whether it's a change to the address of the principal office or the number of directors.
Typically you amend a provision by stating that Article Third is hereby replaced in its entirety to read as follows:
As to whether a MD corporation can have no directors and how to provide for its management, you should consult with an experienced corporate attorney.
The foregoing discussion does not establish an attorney-client relationship, is qualified by the limited facts presented above, and should not be relied upon as legal advice. To obtain definitive legal advice upon which one can rely necessitates retaining an attorney who is qualified in this particular area of the law.
