SECTION 4. Special Meetings: How Called: Notice: Special meetings of the board of directors may be called by the chairman of the board, a vice chairman of the board, the president or a majority of the directors. Written notice of the time, place and purposes of each special meeting shall be sent by private express carrier or transmitted by telex, facsimile or similar means to each director at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to such meeting. Notwithstanding the preceding, any meeting of the board of directors shall be a legal meeting without any notice thereof if all the members of the board shall be present, or if all absent members waive notice thereof.
(a) The Board of Directors shall determine the number of directors on the board, which shall be at least twelve (12).
(b) No person shall be eligible to become or to remain a director of the corporation unless the person is a stockholder in the corporation. Not more than six (6) of the members of the board of directors shall be officers or employees of the corporation, but the chairman of the board shall not be deemed such an officer or employee.
(c) Subject to the provisions of the certificate of incorporation, as amended, a majority of the total number of the directors shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. The affirmative vote of the majority of the directors present at a meeting at which a quorum is constituted shall be the act of the board of directors, unless the certificate of incorporation shall require a vote of a greater number.
(d) Except as otherwise provided in these by-laws, directors shall hold office until the next succeeding annual stockholders meeting and thereafter until their successors are respectively elected and qualified.
