The name of the society and, if it has been changed, the name under which it was originally incorporated.


The date and place of filing of the original certificate of incorporation and any subsequent amendments thereto.


Each amendment effected thereby.


A statement as to due compliance with the provisions in this section as to the authorization of the filing of the certificate of amendment.
