Section 1. Waiver of Notice
Any member or Board member may waive in writing any notice of a meeting required to be given by this Code of Regulations. The attendance of a member or Board member at any meeting shall constitute a waiver of notice of such meeting by such member or Board member, except in case a member or Board member shall attend a meeting for the express purpose of objecting to the transaction of any business on the ground that the meeting has not been lawfully called or convened.
Section 2. Policies, Rules & Regulations
The Board shall have power to make and adopt such policies, rules, and regulations, not inconsistent with law, the Articles of Incorporation or this Code of Regulations, as it may deem advisable for the management, administration, and regulation of the business and affairs of the Cooperative.
Section 3. Accounting System & Reports
The Board shall cause to be established and maintain a complete accounting system which, among other things, and subject to applicable laws and rules and regulations of the regulatory body, shall substantially conform to such accounting system as may from time to time be designated by the Administrator of the Rural Utilities Service of the United States of America. The Board shall also after the close of each fiscal year cause to be made by a certified public accountant a full and complete audit of the accounts, books, and financial condition of the Cooperative as of the end of such fiscal year. A report of such audit shall be submitted to the members at the next following annual meeting.
Section 4. Access to Membership List
Any member of the Cooperative, or the agent or attorney of such member, shall have the right to examine the Cooperative's membership list at any reasonable time as determined by the Cooperative for the purpose of (a) nominating qualified candidates for election to the Cooperative's Board of Trustees by petition, or (b) campaigning and soliciting member votes for any qualified candidate properly nominated by the nominating committee or by petition for election to the Cooperative's Board of Trustees. For these purposes, the membership list shall consist solely of, and such member or its agent or attorney shall only have the right to examine, the names and addresses of each member of the Cooperative as such names and addresses are contained in the Cooperative's records. For these purposes, and upon the request in writing of such member or its agent or attorney to the Cooperative, such member or its agent or attorney shall also have the right to obtain from the Cooperative one copy of the names and addresses of each member of the Cooperative as such names and addresses are contained in the Cooperative's records and in such form as the Cooperative maintains such records; provided, however, that such member shall reimburse the Cooperative its reasonable costs incurred in connection with such copying. Nothing in this Section is intended to prohibit the members or trustees of the Cooperative or their agents or attorneys from examining the books and records of the Cooperative, including its membership list, for any other reasonable and proper purpose and at any reasonable time, as determined by the Cooperative.
