(4) Change the status of the limited liability company from one in which management is vested in the members to one in which management is vested in one or more managers, or vice versa;

(5) Authorize any transaction, agreement or action on behalf of the limited liability company that is unrelated to its purpose as set forth in the articles of organization, that otherwise contravenes the operating agreement or that is not within the usual course of the business of the limited liability company; or

(6) Determine, modify, compromise or release the amount and character of the contributions which a member shall make, or shall promise to make, as the consideration for the issuance of an interest in the limited liability company.

4.
