What is a Registered Agent? Who Needs One?

27 Jan 2018 in

Designating a Registered Agent for your Association is a requirement of Florida’s Not-For-Profit Corporation Law.  If you do not designate a Registered Agent, your corporate status will be in jeopardy of being dissolved and your Association will lose all protection that is afforded you as a Not-For-Profit Corporation.  So, what does that mean?   You may have heard the phrase “piercing the corporate veil.”   No Registered Agent?  Consider your corporate veil torpedoed!  Board Members and Officers may now be personally exposed to liability for matters that should be your Association’s responsibility and your personal assets could be at risk.
