When a Society's Bylaws define Special Meetings in the following manner: "Special Meetings may be called by the President or Executive Board and shall be called upon the written request of ten members. Except in case of emergency, ten days notice shall be given." and the state's General Statutes define Special Meetings in the following manner: " A corporation with members shall hold a special meeting of members: (1) On call of its board of directors or the person or persons authorized to do so by the articles of incorporation or bylaws; or (2) Within 30 days after the holders of at least ten percent (10%) of all the votes entitled to be cast on any issue proposed to be considered at the proposed special meeting sign, date, and deliver to the corporation's secretary one or more written demands for the meeting describing the purpose or purposes for which it is to be held.", when the required percentage of members request an emergency special meeting with a specified meeting date, time, and place along with specific purpose and reason for emergency, can the President (1) disregard the emergency and set her own date at some time to be determined in the future up to 30 days out; (2) is the Secretary responsible for immediately sending the member emergency special meeting to the members upon reception of the request? Thank you.
