Notice Of Meeting

35-2-530. Notice of meeting. (1) A corporation shall give notice consistent with its bylaws of meetings of members in a fair and reasonable manner.

(2) Any notice that conforms to the requirements of subsection (3) is fair and reasonable, but other means of giving notice may also be fair and reasonable when all the circumstances are considered. However, notice of matters referred to in subsection (3)(b) must be given as specified in subsection (3).

(3) Notice is fair and reasonable if:

(a) the corporation notifies its members of the place, date, and time of each annual, regular, and special meeting of members not less than 10 days before the meeting date or, if notice is mailed by certified mail, not less than 30 or more than 60 days before the meeting date;

(b) notice of an annual or regular meeting includes a description of any matter or matters that must be approved by the members under 35-2-223, 35-2-230, 35-2-418, 35-2-452, 35-2-611, 35-2-617, 35-2-720, or 35-2-721; and

(c) notice of a special meeting includes a description of the matter or matters for which the meeting is called.

(4) Unless the bylaws require otherwise, if an annual, regular, or special meeting of members is adjourned to a different date, time, or place, notice need not be given of the new date, time, or place, if the new date, time, or place is announced at the meeting before adjournment. If a new record date for the adjourned meeting is or must be fixed under 35-2-532, notice of the adjourned meeting must be given under this section to the members of record as of the new record date.

(5) When giving notice of an annual, regular, or special meeting of members, a corporation shall give notice of a matter a member intends to raise at the meeting if:

(a) requested in writing to do so by a person entitled to call a special meeting; and

(b) the request is received by the secretary or president of the corporation at least 10 days before the corporation gives notice of the meeting.
