(a) at the time or upon the occurrence of events specified in writing in the articles of organization or operating agreement;
(b) consent of the number or percentage of members specified in the operating agreement;
(c) an event that makes it unlawful for all or substantially all of the business of the company to be continued, but any cure of illegality within 90 days after notice to the company of the event is effective retroactively to the date of the event for purposes of this section;
(d) the expiration of the term specified in the articles of organization; or
