It shall be the duty of the Secretary to send by prepaid first-class United States mail a notice of each annual and special meeting to each Member (and any other person entitled to notice under the Declaration or Bylaws) at such address as the Member or other person shall have furnished in writing to the Board of Directors, or, if a Member fails to specify such address, the address of the Lot owned by the Member. The notice shall state the time and place of the meeting and the items on the agenda to be voted on by the Members, including the general nature of any proposed amendments to the Declaration, Articles of Incorporation, or Bylaws, changes in the previously approved budget, and any proposal to remove a director or officer. The notice shall be given not less than fourteen (14) days nor more than sixty (60) days prior to an annual meeting or a special meeting. Notice of any meeting of the Association may be waived in writing at any time and is waived by actual attendance at such meeting, unless such appearance is limited expressly to object to the legality of the meeting.

The presence in person or by proxy of Members having ten percent (10%) or more of all votes shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at any meeting of the Association.
