Section 2.5 Special Meetings.  Special meetings of the Board of Directors may be called by the Chairman of the Board or a majority of the Directors upon not less than twenty-four (24) hours' notice given to each Director of the date, time and place of the meeting, which notice need not specify the purpose or purposes of the special meeting.  Such notice may be communicated in person (either in writing or orally), by telephone, telegraph, teletype or other form of wire or wireless communication, or by mail, and shall be effective at the earlier of the time of its receipt or, if mailed, five (5) days after its mailing.  Notice of any meeting of the Board may be waived in writing at any time if the waiver is signed by the Director entitled to the notice and is filed with the minutes or corporate records.  A Director's attendance at or participation in a meeting waives any required notice to the Director of the meeting, unless the Director at the beginning of the meeting (or promptly upon the Director's arrival) objects to holding the meeting or transacting business at the meeting and does not thereafter vote for or assent to action taken at the meeting.
Section 2.6 Written Consents.  Any action required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of the Board of Directors may be taken without a meeting if the action is taken by all members of the Board.  The action must be evidenced by one (1) or more written consents describing the action taken, signed by each Director, included in the minutes or filed with the corporate records reflecting the action taken and delivered to the Secretary of the Corporation.  Action taken under this Section 2.6 is effective when the last Director signs the consent, unless (a) the consent specifies a different prior or subsequent effective date, in which case the action is effective on or as of the specified date or (b) the action taken under this Section 2.6 is taken electronically as contemplated by Indiana Code § 26-2-8, in which case the effective date is determined in accordance with Indiana Code § 26-2-8.  A Director's consent may be withdrawn by a revocation signed by the Director and delivered to the Corporation before the delivery to the Corporation of unrevoked written consents signed by all the Directors.  A consent signed under this Section 2.6 shall have the same effect as a unanimous meeting vote of all members of the Board and may be described as such in any document.
Section 2.7 Participation by Conference Telephone.  The Board of Directors may permit any or all Directors to participate in a regular or special meeting by, or through the use of, any means of communication, such as conference telephone, by which all Directors participating may simultaneously hear each other during the meeting.  A Director participating in a meeting by such means shall be deemed to be present in person at the meeting.
Section 2.8 Organization.  At every meeting of the Board of Directors, the Chairman of the Board, or in the Chairman's absence, a person designated by the Chairman, shall act as chairman.  The Secretary of the Corporation shall act as secretary of such meeting or, in the Secretary's absence, the Chairman shall appoint a secretary.
Section 2.9 Resignation.  A Director may resign at any time by delivering written notice to the Chairman of the Board, the Secretary of the Corporation, the Board of Directors, or such other officer as the Board of Directors may designate, and such resignation shall become effective upon such delivery unless the notice specifies a later effective date.
Section 2.10 Compensation.  Any Director who is also an officer of the Corporation shall receive no separate compensation for serving as Director.  Each Director who is not an officer of the Corporation shall be paid such compensation or other remuneration as shall be fixed from time
