§230.  Notice of meetings of members

A.  Unless otherwise provided in the articles or by-laws, and except as otherwise provided in this Chapter, the authorized person or persons calling a members' meeting shall cause written notice of the time, place and purpose of the meeting to be given to all members entitled to vote at such meeting, at least ten days and not more than sixty days prior to the day fixed for the meeting.  Notice of the annual meeting need not state the purpose thereof, except as otherwise provided in this Chapter if a specified action is to be taken at the meeting.  If such written notice is placed in the United States mail, postage prepaid, and addressed to a member at his last known address, notice shall be deemed to have been given him.  Notice of any meeting may be waived in writing by any member at any time; the written waiver need not specify the purpose of or the business to be transacted at the meeting; and such notice shall be deemed to have been given to, or waived by, all members present or represented at any such meeting except any member who, at the beginning of the meeting, objects to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened.  Notice need not be given to any member with whom communication is made unlawful by any law of the United States of America, or by any rule, regulation, proclamation or executive order issued under any such law; and any action or meeting taken or held without notice to any such member shall have the same force and effect as if notice had been given to him as otherwise required.

B.  Adjournments of any annual or special meeting of members may be taken without new notice being given, unless a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, but any meeting at which directors are to be elected shall be adjourned only from day to day until such directors have been elected.

C.  In the event there occurs the accidental destruction or accidental loss of corporate records, or other similar exigency, if the corporation is unable to give notice of a meeting to its members at their last known addresses, notice shall be given by advertisement at least thirty days prior to the meeting and again twice within thirty days of the meeting, in a daily paper published in the parish in which the corporation is domiciled, if there exists such a paper, or published for four consecutive weeks prior to the meeting in a weekly paper published in the parish in which the corporation is domiciled. In the absence of a daily or weekly paper, notice shall be given by the posting of the notice in the principal meeting place of the corporation, or at the parish courthouse door in the absence of such a meeting place.
