§ 7-7-14. Directors – Meetings of association.

The bylaws of each association shall provide for the management of the association by a board of not less than five (5) directors, who shall be elected by the members in any manner, at any times, and for any terms that the bylaws prescribe. Regular meetings of the association shall be held at any places and at any times that the bylaws prescribe. The board of directors may hold special and adjourned meetings and may call a special meeting of the association at any time. Ten percent (10%) of the members may file a petition stating the specific business to be brought before the association and demand a special meeting at any time. The meeting must at that time be called by the directors. Notice of all meetings, together with a statement of the purposes of the meeting, shall be mailed to each member at least five (5) days prior to the meeting. However, the bylaws may require instead that the notice may be given by publication in a newspaper or newspapers of general circulation, in the territory in which the association has its membership.
