The state of Alabama requires that all corporations have a document that is known as the corporate bylaw in accordance with Section 10A-2-2.06. The bylaw shall state information about the entity that is not specifically detailed in the Articles of Incorporation such as the general business purpose, management, annual meeting, ownership/distribution of shares, and any other changes to the corporation (changes should be listed as amendments). Once the document has been completed it is not to be filed with any government office, rather, it is held by all officers, directors, and registered agents.
