The principal place of business must not be changed except through an amendment to its articles of incorporation.
(b) The principal place of business must be in charge of an agent of the corporation and must be the place where it keeps its corporate books of account, a record of its proceedings, and its stock and transfer books, and hold its stockholders meetings.
