If you`re starting an LLC in Kentucky, it`s important to have an operating agreement that outlines how your business will be structured and run. One of the key decisions you will need to make in your operating agreement is whether your LLC will be member-managed or manager-managed.

In a member-managed LLC, all members have equal say in the day-to-day operations of the business. This can be a good option if you have a small number of members who are actively involved in the business. However, if you have a larger LLC or want to bring in outside investors or partners who won`t be involved in the day-to-day operations, a manager-managed LLC might be the better choice.

In a manager-managed LLC, one or more designated managers are responsible for making the business decisions and running the company. Members still have a say in major decisions, such as hiring or firing managers, but they don`t have the same level of involvement in day-to-day operations.

If you decide to go with a manager-managed LLC in Kentucky, your operating agreement should include provisions about how managers will be chosen or elected, how long their terms will be, and how they will be compensated. You should also outline their duties and responsibilities, including their authority to make decisions on behalf of the LLC.

One important consideration when setting up a manager-managed LLC in Kentucky is that the manager(s) must be named in the Articles of Organization. This means you will need to have your manager(s) chosen before you file your paperwork with the state.

Overall, a manager-managed LLC can be a good choice if you have a large or complex business and want to keep day-to-day operations in the hands of a designated manager or management team. However, it`s important to consult with a lawyer and carefully consider all your options before making a decision about how to structure your LLC.
