Article V, Section 13 of the Bylaws states in total [emphasis mine]:|
ANNUAL MEETING OF THE CORPORATION
Annual meetings of the Corporation will be held for the purpose of electing Officers and for the transaction of such other business as may come before the meeting. The first annual meeting will be held the last week of September 1999 or on such other date as may be set by the Board. Subsequent annual meetings shall be held as set by the Board not less than ten (10) nor more than thirteen (13) months after the annual meeting held the prior year. In the absence of designation, the annual meeting will be held at the principal office of the Corporation. The annual meeting will be open to the public. If the Board determines that it is practical, the annual meeting should be distributed in real-time and archived video and audio formats on the Internet.
As the last annual meeting ended November 15, 2001, the next would have to take place by approximately December 15, 2002. It seems to me that the issue of location of the annual general meeting has come up before, with it being suggested that the AGM must be held in California. The above Bylaw states: In the absence of designation, the annual meeting will be held at the principal office of the Corporation. so this doesn't appear to be a requirement of the Bylaws (assuming that by designation they mean, for example, naming Shanghai). However, does California law require that the annual general meeting take place in California? -g
