RCW 24.03A.015 - Notice
(1) Notice under this chapter must be in the form of a record unless this chapter or the articles or bylaws allow oral notice.
(2) Notice may be communicated in person or by delivery. If these forms of communication are impracticable, notice may be communicated by a newspaper of general circulation in the area where published, or by radio, television, or other form of public broadcast communication.
(3) Notice, other than notice described in subsection (4) of this section, is effective at the earliest of the following:
(a) When received;
(b) When left at the recipient's residence or usual place of business;
(c) Five days after its deposit in the United States mail or with a commercial delivery service, if the postage or delivery charge is paid and the notice is correctly addressed; or
(d) On the date shown on the return receipt, if sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, or by commercial delivery service.
(4) Notice in the form of a record by a membership corporation to a member is effective:
(a) Five days after its deposit in the United States mail or with a commercial delivery service, if the postage or delivery charge is paid and the notice is correctly addressed to the member's address shown in the corporation's current record of members;
(b) When given, if the notice is delivered by electronic transmission to the member's address shown in the corporation's current record of members; or
(c) When given, if the notice is delivered in any other manner that the member has authorized.
(5) Notice to a domestic or registered foreign nonprofit corporation may be delivered to its registered agent or to the corporation or its secretary at its principal office shown in its most recent annual report or, in the case of a foreign corporation that has not yet delivered an annual report, in its registration statement.
(6) Where oral notice is permitted, it is effective when communicated, if communicated in a comprehensible manner.
(7) If this chapter prescribes notice requirements for particular circumstances, those requirements govern. If the articles or bylaws prescribe notice requirements, not inconsistent with this section or other provisions of this chapter, those requirements govern.
(8) With respect to electronic transmissions:
(a) Unless otherwise provided in the articles or bylaws, or otherwise agreed between the sender and the recipient, an electronic transmission is received when:
(i) It enters an electronic system that the recipient has designated or currently uses for the purpose of receiving electronic transmissions of the type sent; and
(ii) It is in a form capable of being processed by that system.
(b) An electronic transmission is received under (a)(i) of this subsection even if no individual is aware of its receipt.
(c) Receipt of an electronic acknowledgment from an electronic system described in (a)(i) of this subsection establishes that a record was received but, by itself, does not establish that the content sent corresponds to the content received, and is not necessary for the record to be received.
(9) A member may revoke in the form of a record a corporation's express or implied authorization to deliver notices or communications by electronic transmission to the member. Such authorization is deemed revoked with respect to a member if:
(a) The corporation cannot deliver two consecutive notices or other communications to the member's address shown in the corporation's current record of members; and
(b) The inability becomes known to the secretary or other person responsible for giving the notice or other communication; but the failure to treat the inability as a revocation does not invalidate any meeting or other action.
RCW 24.03A.410 - Notice of Membership Meeting
(1) A membership corporation shall give notice to the members of the date, time, and place of each annual, regular, or special meeting of the members. Except as provided under subsection (6) of this section, the notice must be given in the form of a record no fewer than ten nor more than sixty days before the meeting date. Except as provided in this chapter, the articles, or the bylaws, the corporation is only required to give notice to members entitled to vote at the meeting.
(2) Unless this chapter, the articles, or the bylaws require otherwise, notice of an annual or regular meeting need not include a description of the purpose for which the meeting is called.
(3) Notice of a special meeting shall include a description of the purpose for which the meeting is called.
(4) If not otherwise fixed under RCW 24.03A.400 or 24.03A.420, the record date for determining members entitled to notice of and to vote at an annual or special meeting of the members is the day before the first notice is given to members.
(5) Unless the articles or bylaws require otherwise, if an annual, regular, or special meeting of the members is adjourned to a different date, time, or place, notice need not be given of the new date, time, or place if the new date, time, or place is announced at the meeting before adjournment. If a new record date for the adjourned meeting is or is required to be fixed under RCW 24.03A.420, then the corporation shall give notice of the adjourned meeting to the members entitled to vote on the new record date.
(6) Notice of regular meetings other than the annual meeting may be made by providing each member with the adopted schedule of regular meetings for the ensuing year in the form of a record at any time after the annual meeting and ten days before the next succeeding regular meeting and at any time requested by a member or by any other notice prescribed by the bylaws.
(7) Whenever notice would otherwise be required to be given under any provision of this chapter to a member, the notice need not be given if notice of two consecutive annual meetings, and all notices of meetings during the period between those two consecutive annual meetings, have been returned undeliverable or could not be delivered. If a member delivers to the nonprofit corporation a notice setting forth the member's then current address, then the requirement that notice be given to that member is reinstated.
RCW 24.03A.555 - Notice of Board Meetings
(1) Regular meetings of the board may be held with or without notice as prescribed in the articles or bylaws, unless notice is required by RCW 24.03A.530(2) or other provisions of this chapter.
(2) Unless the articles or bylaws provide for a longer or shorter period, special meetings of the board must be preceded by at least forty-eight hours' notice of the date, time, and place of the meeting. The notice need not describe the purpose of the special meeting, except as required by RCW 24.03A.530(2), other provisions of this chapter, or the articles or bylaws.
(3) Unless the articles or bylaws provide otherwise, the president, the secretary, or twenty percent of the directors then in office may call and give, or cause to be given, notice of a meeting of the board.
(4) Oral notice of meetings of the board may be given, unless oral notice is not permitted by a corporation's articles or bylaws.
