Articles of Incorporation are the primary rules for governing the management of a corporation.
Additionally, California's Nonprofit Religious Corporations law, under which CST was formed and is regulated, sets specific requirements for religious corporations.
Bylaws spell out specific rules for the operation of a corporation, are drafted by the corporate founder or its directors in accordance with its Articles of Incorporation.
For example, all affairs and activities of a California religious corporation must be exercised by and under the direction of a board of directors. California Corporations Code Section 9210.
These are not mere legal formalities but form the basis for special privileges afforded nonprofit entities, including tax-exempt status, which can be revoked for non-compliance; not to mention the duties and obligations to LRH to fulfill his wishes.
