(A) Unless the governing principles provide otherwise, meetings of voting members of an unincorporated nonprofit association may be called by any of the following:
(1) The president or, in case of the president's absence, death, or disability, the vice-president authorized to exercise the authority of the president;
(2) The manager or managers by action at a meeting, or a majority of the managers acting without a meeting;
(3) The lesser of ten per cent of the voting members or twenty-five of the voting members, unless the governing principles specify for that purpose a smaller or larger proportion or number, but not in excess of fifty per cent of the voting members;
(4) Any other officers or persons that the governing principles authorize to call those meetings.
(B) If so provided in the governing principles, meetings of voting members may be held either within or outside this state or solely by means of authorized communications equipment.
(C) Unless the governing principles provide otherwise, the voting members and proxyholders who are not physically present at a meeting of voting members may attend the meeting by the use of authorized communications equipment that enables the voting members and proxyholders an opportunity to participate in the meeting and to vote on matters submitted to the voting members, including an opportunity to read or hear the proceedings of the meeting, participate in the proceedings, and contemporaneously communicate with the persons who are physically present at the meeting. Any voting member who uses authorized communications equipment under this division is considered to be present in person at the meeting whether the meeting is held at a designated place or solely by means of authorized communications equipment. The members or managers may adopt procedures and guidelines for the use of authorized communications equipment in connection with a meeting of voting members to permit the unincorporated nonprofit association to verify that a person is a voting member or proxyholder and to maintain a record of any vote or other action taken at the meeting.
