§ 7-6-27. Place and notice of directors’ meetings.

(a) Regular or special meetings of the board of directors may be held either within or without this state, and on the notice that the bylaws prescribe. Attendance of a director at any meeting constitutes a waiver of notice of the meeting, except when 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 need be specified in the notice or waiver of notice of the meeting.

(b) 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 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 that means constitutes presence in person at a meeting.
