A notice stating the place, day and hour of any meeting of Members and, in the case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, shall be delivered not less than 10 nor more than 40 days before the date of the meeting, either personally, by U.S. mail or, subject to the requirements of applicable law, by electronic transmission by or at the direction of the Secretary, to each Member entitled to vote at the meeting. If mailed, the notice shall be deemed delivered when deposited in the U.S. mail, addressed to the Member at his or her address as it appears on NFA records, with postage prepaid. Attendance at a meeting by a Member shall constitute waiver of notice of such meeting, except when the Member attends a meeting for express purposes of objecting, at the beginning of the meeting, to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened.
