Restrictions on the transfer (a) allocation of interest. Membership interest can often be attributed, but this allocation does not involve administrative rights. To transfer both the economic and administrative rights of a member of interest, a member must comply with the transmission restrictions and obtain (if the enterprise agreement provides for it) the agreement of the executives.
