(805 ILCS 105/107.05) (from Ch. 32, par. 107.05)
Sec. 107.05. Meeting of members.
(a) Meetings of members may be held either within or without this State, as may be provided in the bylaws or in a resolution of the board of directors pursuant to authority granted in the bylaws. In the absence of any such provision, all meetings shall be held at the registered office of the corporation in this State.
(b) An annual meeting of the members entitled to vote may be held at such time as may be provided in the bylaws or in a resolution of the board of directors pursuant to authority granted in the bylaws. Failure to hold the annual meeting at the designated time shall not work a forfeiture or dissolution of the corporation nor affect the validity of corporate action. If an annual meeting has not been held within the earlier of six months after the end of the corporation's fiscal year or fifteen months after its last annual meeting and if, after a request in writing directed to the president of the corporation, a notice of meeting is not delivered to members entitled to vote within 60 days of such request, then any member entitled to vote at an annual meeting may apply to the circuit court of the county in which the registered office or principal place of business of the corporation is located for an order directing that the meeting be held and fixing the time and place of the meeting. The court may issue such additional orders as may be necessary or appropriate for the holding of the meeting.
(c) Special meetings of the members may be called by the president or by the board of directors. Special meetings of the members may also be called by such other officers or persons or number or proportion of members entitled to vote as may be provided in the articles of incorporation or the bylaws. In the absence of a provision fixing the number or proportion of members entitled to vote who are entitled to call a meeting, a special meeting of members entitled to vote may be called by such members having one-twentieth of the votes entitled to be cast at such meeting.
(d) Unless specifically prohibited by the articles of incorporation or bylaws, a corporation may allow members entitled to vote to participate in and act at any meeting through the use of a conference telephone or interactive technology, including but not limited to electronic transmission, Internet usage, or remote communication, by means of which all persons participating in the meeting can communicate with each other. Participation in such meeting shall constitute attendance and presence in person at the meeting of the person or persons so participating.
(e) For meetings of a not-for-profit corporation organized for the purpose of residential cooperative housing, consisting of 50 or more single family dwellings with individual unit legal descriptions based upon a recorded plat of a subdivision, and located in a county containing a population between 780,000 and 3,000,000 inhabitants, any member may record by tape, film, or other means the proceedings at the meetings. The board or the membership may prescribe reasonable rules and regulations to govern the making of the recordings. The portion of any meeting held to discuss violations of rules and regulations of the corporation by a residential shareholder shall be recorded only with the affirmative assent of that shareholder.
