What if documents are not filed with commissions? Are the officers elected still valid?

How To Run A Meeeting

If you would like to know more about how Parliamentarian Procedure from Little Ben, click here for my DVD called How To Run A Meeting.

The previous officer of our organization had not amended the officers of 2014, and haven't filed the "fs" and "gis" to the securities and exchange commissions.and now we will be having election this October for the new batch of officers for 2015. my question
1. are the officers of 2014 that were not amended are they legal to carry on the position?
2.some say that officers who were not amended are null and void. is this true?
3.are we going to violate law if we still continue to hold an election, even if the officers were not amended?
4.what are the best possible solutions for this?
thank you, and more power!

Hmmm....what a question. Before I put on my thinking and cap and answer it, what "fs" and "gis?" Do these have laws that say unless your officers are reported to them they are not valid? If these are government requirements, I would say that it does not affect your organization's officers. Is it possible to supply "fs" and"gis" with the current names and then do it again when the 2015 officers take their positions?
