317A.431 ANNUAL MEETINGS OF VOTING MEMBERS.
    Subdivision 1. Frequency. Unless the articles or bylaws provide otherwise, a corporation
with voting members shall hold at least an annual meeting of voting members.
    Subd. 2. Demand by members. If an annual meeting of voting members has not been held
during the preceding 15 months, at least 50 members with voting rights or ten percent of the
members with voting rights, whichever is less, may demand an annual meeting of members by
written notice of demand given to the president or the treasurer of the corporation. Within 30 days
after receipt of the demand, the board shall cause a meeting of members to be called and held at
the expense of the corporation on notice no later than 90 days after receipt of the demand. If the
board fails to cause a meeting to be called and held as required by this subdivision, the members
with voting rights making the demand may call the meeting at the expense of the corporation by
giving notice as required by section 317A.435.
    Subd. 3. Time; place. An annual meeting of members must be held at the time and place
stated in or fixed in accordance with the articles or bylaws. If a place is not stated or if a demand
for a meeting is made under subdivision 2, the meeting must be held in the county where the
corporation's registered office is located. To the extent authorized in articles or bylaws, the board
of directors may determine that an annual meeting of the members shall be held solely by means
of remote communication in accordance with section 317A.450, subdivision 2.
    Subd. 4. Elections; business. At an annual meeting of members:
(1) there must be an election of successors for directors elected by members and whose terms
have expired or whose terms expire at an annual meeting;
(2) there must be a report on the activities and financial condition of the corporation; and
(3) the members shall consider and act upon other matters as may be raised consistent with
the notice of meeting requirements.
    Subd. 5. Effect of failure to hold meeting. The failure to hold a meeting in accordance with
a corporation's articles or bylaws does not affect the validity of a corporate action.
