(a) The approval of any action for which this division also requires shareholders’ approval (Section 153) or approval of the outstanding shares (Section 152).
(b) The filling of vacancies on the board or in any committee.
(c) The fixing of compensation of the directors for serving on the board or on any committee.
(d) The amendment or repeal of bylaws or the adoption of new bylaws.
