    (2) in a record, by each member of a domestic converting limited liability company who will have personal liability for debts, obligations, and other liabilities that are incurred after the conversion becomes effective, unless:

    (A) the operating agreement of the company provides in a record for the approval of a conversion or a merger in which some or all of its members become subject to personal liability by the affirmative vote or consent of fewer than all the members; and
