A registered agent may resign as agent upon delivering a signed statement to the office and giving notice in the form of a copy of the statement to the limited liability company. The statement may include a statement that the registered office is also discontinued.
Upon delivery of the signed statement, the Secretary of State shall file the resignation statement. The copy of the statement given to the limited liability company under subsection (1) of this section shall be addressed to the limited liability company at its mailing address or its principal office as shown by the records of the office of the Secretary of State.
The agency appointment is terminated and the registered office discontinued, if so provided, on the 31st day after the date on which the statement was filed by the Secretary of State, unless the limited liability company shall sooner appoint a successor registered agent as provided in ORS 63.114 (Change of registered office or registered agent) thereby terminating the capacity of such agent.
