Vote to remove the officer and amend the articles of incorporation during a board meeting. A majority vote is needed. Vote to add a replacement officer if the bylaws require it.
Prepare the articles of amendment. The exact format varies by state law. Many states provide the appropriate form on their Secretary of State's website. The corporation can also prepare this document from scratch.
File the completed amendment form or amended articles of incorporation, or both, with the Secretary of State, or appropriate regulatory agency, and include the appropriate filing fee. This will usually require the signature of an officer or director.
Attach the amendment to the original articles of incorporation in the corporate records.
