If the directors, officers and federal ID number have not changed, the name can be changed by submitting the following documentation:

  1. Written statement signed by the President, that the directors, officers and federal ID number have not changed.
  2. Certificate of Good Standing from the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation or the chartering authority of the state of formation showing the new name.
