1. After fixing a record date for a notice of a meeting, a corporation shall prepare
an alphabetical list of the names of all its members who are entitled to vote at the
annual meeting. The list must show the address and number of votes each member is entitled to vote
at the meeting.
2. The list of members must be available for inspection by any member for the purpose
of communication with other members concerning the meeting, beginning two business
days after notice is given of the meeting for which the list was prepared and continuing
through the meeting, at the corporation's principal office or at a reasonable place
identified in the meeting notice in the city where the meeting will be held. A member, a member's agent or a member's attorney is entitled on written demand
to inspect the list, at a reasonable time, during the period it is available for inspection.
3. The corporation shall make the list of members available at the meeting, and any
member, a member's agent or attorney is entitled to inspect the list at any time during
the meeting or any adjournment.
4. If the corporation refuses to allow a member, a member's agent or a member's attorney
to inspect the list of members before or at the meeting, the circuit court of the
county where a corporation's principal office, or, if none in this state, its registered
office, is located, on application of the member, may summarily order the inspection
and may postpone the meeting for which the list was prepared until the inspection
is complete, and may order the corporation to pay the member's costs, including reasonable
counsel fees, incurred to obtain the order.
5. Unless a written demand to inspect a membership list has been made under subsection
2 of this section prior to the membership meeting and a corporation improperly refuses
to comply with the demand, refusal or failure to comply with this section does not
affect the validity of action taken at the meeting.
