SECTION 7-1.2-809


§ 7-1.2-809 Place, notice, and form of notice of directors' and committee meetings.

(a) Meetings of the board of directors, or any committee designated by the board, regular or special, may be held either within or without this state.

(b) Regular meetings of the board of directors or any committee designated by the board may be held with or without notice as prescribed in the bylaws. Unless the articles of incorporation or the bylaws provide for an alternative period, special meetings of the board of directors or any committee designated by the board must be preceded by at least two (2) days' notice of the date, time, and place of the meeting. Attendance of a director at a meeting constitutes a waiver of notice of the meeting, except where a director attends a meeting for the express purpose of objecting to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened. Neither the business to be transacted at, nor the purpose of, any regular or special meeting of the board of directors or any committee designated by the board of directors need be specified in the notice or waiver of notice of the meeting unless required by the bylaws. Except as may be otherwise restricted by the articles of incorporation or bylaws, members of the board of directors, or any committee designated by the board of directors, may participate in a meeting of the board or committee by means of a conference telephone or similar communications equipment, by means of which all persons participating in the meeting can hear each other at the same time and participation by those means constitutes presence in person at a meeting.
