§455.  Removal of officer or director

A.  Any member may bring charges against an officer or director by filing them in writing with the secretary of the association, together with a petition signed by ten per cent of the members, requesting the removal of the officer or director in question.  The question of such removal shall be voted upon at the next regular or special meeting of the association and, by vote of the majority of the members, the association may remove the officer or director and fill the vacancy.  The officer or director against whom such charges have been brought shall be informed in writing of the charges a reasonable time previous to the meeting, and shall have an opportunity at the meeting to be heard in person or by counsel and to present witnesses.  The person or persons so bringing charges against him shall have the same opportunity.  But such officer or director may be suspended by a vote of two-thirds of the directors, pending the hearing of such charges.  

B.  If the bylaws provide for the election of directors by districts, with primary elections in each district, then the petition for removal of an officer or director must be signed by twenty per cent of the members residing in the district from which he was elected.  The board of directors must call a special meeting of the members residing in that district to consider the removal of the officer or director.  By a vote of the majority of the members of that district, the officer or director in question shall be removed from office.
