No worries, but again a legally entity does not require a
board/trustees, but officers. If the charter did not make provisions for
officers, then that could be the source of the problem :)
I think you might mean the articles of incorporation vs charter? The
articles seem to state a requirement of 3. But then says it shall be
fixed by the ByLaws, which never existed till 2008. Or at least approved
"The number of trustees of the Corporation shall be not less than three
or more than twenty-one. The initial Board of Trustees shall consist of
thirteen persons. Thereafter, the Board of Trustees shall consist of
such number of persons, not Less than three, as shall be fixed by the
Bylaws. The initial Trustees who shall hold office until their
successors shall take office, are as follows:"
