meeting are changed by the Board of Directors, as may be done from time to time,
provided that all legal requirements for such change and notice to stockholders

held on the last Tuesday in April in each year, if not a legal holiday, and if a
legal holiday, then on the next succeeding Tuesday which is not a legal holiday.
Special meetings of the stockholders may be called by the Board of
Directors to be held at such time and place and for such purpose or purposes as
are specified in such call.
Neither the annual meeting nor any special meeting of stockholders need be

Any action required to be taken at any annual or special meeting of the
stockholders of the Corporation, or any action which may be taken at any annual
or special meeting of the stockholders or otherwise, may not be taken without a
meeting, prior notice and a vote, and stockholders may not act by written
consent.
Section 2. Notice of Meetings of Stockholders. It shall be the duty of
the Secretary to cause notice of each annual or special meeting to be mailed to
all stockholders of record as of the record date as fixed by the Board of
Directors for the determination of stockholders entitled to vote at such
meeting. Such notice shall indicate briefly the action to be taken at such
meeting and shall be mailed to the stockholders at the addresses of such
stockholders as shown on the books of the Corporation at least 10 days but not
more than 60 days preceding the meeting.
Section 3. Nomination of Directors. Only persons who are nominated in
accordance with the following procedures shall be eligible for election as

be timely must be so delivered not later than the close of business on the later

Corporation.
The chairman of the meeting may, if the facts warrant, determine and
declare to the meeting that a nomination was not made in accordance with the
foregoing procedure, and if he should so determine, he shall so declare to the

Except as otherwise required by law, a majority of the voting power of
the shares of stock entitled to vote generally at a meeting and present in
person or by proxy, whether or not constituting a quorum, may adjourn, from time
to time, without notice other than by announcement at the meeting. At any such

regularity of such powers of attorney, and as to the class and number of shares
held by the persons who severally and respectively executed such powers of

special meeting. At any meeting at which every director shall be present, even
though without any notice, any business may be transacted.
