How to File a Change of Officer in a Louisiana LLC

By Jennifer Hall

As part of registering with the Secretary of State in Louisiana, a limited liability company must list the names of its members and/or managers in its articles of organization. There are no officers in an LLC; the company is governed by the owners, who are known as members, and/or managers, who may be both. Once established, the LLC files an annual report that, among other things, states the governing bodies of the company. Any change in the status of these individuals must be reported by using a specific form provided by the secretary of state.
