On completion of the winding up process, a filing entity must file a certificate of termination with the secretary of state.

Note that this form should only be used for the termination of a nonprofit corporation or a cooperative association. Item 5--Governing Persons: The certificate of termination must set forth the name and address of each of the filing entity's governing persons. In general, a nonprofit corporation must have at least three directors, and a cooperative association must have three liquidating trustees. Set forth the name of the individual in the format specified. Do not use prefixes (e.g., Mr., Mrs., Ms.). Use the suffix box only for titles of lineage (e.g., Jr., Sr., III) and not for other suffixes or titles (e.g., M.D., Ph.D.). An address is always required for each governing person. Please note that a document on file with the secretary of state is a public record that is subject to public access and disclosure. When providing address information for governing persons, use a business or post office box address rather than a residence address if privacy concerns are an issue.

Sections 11.051 to 11.059 of the BOC contain provisions relating to the winding up of a domestic entity.
