accomplished by a meeting using electronic teleconference/
video conference. Passage of such votes shall be as speci-
fied in the appropriate sections of these Bylaws.

unless otherwise required by these Bylaws, submit such a
matter to the membership in writing by mail and/or electronic
vote. The question thus presented shall be decided according
to a majority of the votes cast by mail and/or electronically
within 30 days after its submission to the membership, pro-
vided that votes of at least 10% of the Society members eligi-
ble to vote shall be received. Action taken as a result of such
vote shall be binding upon the Society in the same manner as
would action taken at a duly called meeting.
