Their intention to form a corporation for the transaction of life insurance upon the assessment plan; b. The name of the proposed corporation, which shall not be one in use by another corporation of the state or so nearly similar thereto as to lead to uncertainty or confusion; c. The location of its principal office in this state; and d. The mode in which its corporate powers are to be exercised and of electing directors or trustees.
