Georgia has several requirements that must be met for any director of a corporation:
1. Must be a natural person (a corporation cannot be a director) who is at least 18 years old;
2. Need not be a Georgia resident unless the bylaws or articles of incorporation require it;
3. Need not be a shareholder unless the bylaws or articles of incorporation require it;
4. Need not be a United States Citizen.
A board of directors must consist of at least one individual. The exact number is controlled by the articles of incorporation and bylaws.
There are many other considerations in forming a corporation. It is recommended that you speak to an Atlanta corporate lawyer before proceeding further.
