(1) Any member may bring charges against an officer or director by filing them in
writing with the secretary of the association, together with a petition signed by
five percent (5%) of the members, requesting the removal of the officer or director
in question. The removal shall be voted upon at the next regular or special meeting of the association
and, by a vote of a majority of the members, the association may remove the officer
or director and fill the vacancy. The director or officer against whom such charges have been brought shall be informed
in writing of the charges previous to the meeting and shall have an opportunity at
the meeting to be heard in person or by counsel and to present witnesses; and the
person or persons bringing the charges against him shall have the same opportunity.
(2) In case the bylaws provide for election of directors by districts with primary
elections in each district, then the petition of removal of a director must be signed
by twenty percent (20%) of the members residing in the district from which he was
elected. The board of directors must call a special meeting of the members residing in that
district to consider the removal of the director; and by a vote of the majority of
the members of that district, the director in question shall be removed from office.
