Edit in the Special Meetings section:

  • 2. Special Meetings. Special Meetings of the members may be called by the President, the Secretary, a majority of the directors on the Board, or by a petition signed by either the lesser of seventy-five (75) members or twenty-five percent (25%) of the then-existing membership. Business transacted at a Special Meeting of the members shall be confined to the purpose or purposes stated in the notice of the Special Meeting.

Next up:

5. Quorum. In order to transact business at least fifty percent (50%) of the current Directors must be present at the meeting.

My q's: (Present, or attending? Attending could be by phone) (Why not "half"?)

i. Absence. If a Director is absent from Board meetings three (3) times within a 12-month period, without such absence being excused by the President not less than one (1) day prior to the meeting, the Director shall be deemed to have resigned and the position declared vacant.

My requests: "Having been" Why "three (3)" not "three"?

1. Standing and Special Committees. The Board of Directors may establish standing or special committees and appoint their membership. 1. Standing and Special Committees. The Board may establish standing or special committees by designating two or more Directors to such committees. Paragraph changed

Why the change?
