§231.  Quorum of members

A members' meeting properly called on due notice, if notice is required, may be organized for the transaction of business whenever a quorum is present.  Unless otherwise provided in this Chapter or in the articles or by-laws, the following rules shall apply:

(1)  The presence in person or by proxy of a majority of the voting members shall constitute a quorum.

(2)  The voting members present at a duly organized meeting shall constitute a quorum, and may continue to do business until adjournment, notwithstanding the withdrawal of enough members to leave less than a quorum as fixed in Paragraph (1) of this Section, or in the articles or by-laws, or the refusal of any member present to vote.

(3)  If a meeting cannot be organized for lack of a quorum, those present may, except as otherwise provided in this Chapter, adjourn the meeting to the time and place which they determine.  Notice of the second meeting shall again be attempted pursuant to R.S. 12:230.  However, in the case of any meeting called for the election of directors, those who attend the second of such adjourned meetings, although less than a quorum as fixed in Paragraph (1) of this Section, or in the articles or by-laws, shall nevertheless constitute a quorum for the purpose of electing directors.  In the case of a second such meeting called after the lack of a quorum for a purpose other than or in addition to the election of directors, including amendment of the articles of incorporation or dissolution of the corporation, any number of members present shall constitute a quorum, notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary.
