If the election of directors shall not be held on the day fixed for the Annual Meeting or any adjournment thereof, the board of directors shall cause the election to be held at a special meeting of the members as soon thereafter as is convenient. Failure to hold the Annual Meeting of the members at the designated time and or place shall not be considered a forfeiture or dissolution of the Corporation and shall not invalidate any action taken by the Corporation thereafter.

Section 2. Special Meetings

Special meetings of the members may be called by the President, by a majority of the board of directors or upon a written request signed by at least five percent of all the members and it shall thereupon be the duty of the secretary-treasurer to cause notice of such special meeting to be given as hereinafter provided. Special meetings of the members may be held at such time and place within the area served by the Corporation as the secretary-treasurer may designate in the notice of the special meeting.
