New LLC Law Warning: Managers Must Be Named in Operating Agreement

Why LLCs Must Have an ALLCA Compliant Operating Agreement: Reason # 2

New Arizona Limited Liability Company Act (ALLCA) Section 29-3101.13 effective September 1, 2019, states:

“Manager” means a person that under the Operating Agreement of a Manager-managed limited liability company is responsible, alone or in concert with others, for performing the management functions stated in Section 29-3407, subsection C.

ALLCA Section 29-3105.A.1(b)  states:

The Operating Agreement governs . . . the rights and duties . . . of a person in the capacity of Manager

My interpretation of these two statutes is that under ALLCA the only way a manager of a manager managed LLC can be a manager and have manager power’s is if the LLC has an Operating Agreement and the person or entity is named in that Operating Agreement as a manager.

Conclusion:  When a manager managed LLC becomes subject to the new ALLCA it will not have a manager unless the LLC has an Operating Agreement that names one or more managers.
