Director’s appointment resolution must be recorded in writing

No board membership without an appointment. A director may be registered in the Trade Register as a director and may have been acting in that capacity for years, but in the absence of an appointment resolution, he or she has not been a director. The Supreme Court issued a ruling to that effect back in 1977. And yet, even now in 2022, a written appointment resolution is still often missing. This article addresses the recent ruling on this issue of the Court of Appeal of The Hague.
