B. If all members know of the action taken and no member makes prompt objection to such action; or [1977, c. 525, §13 (NEW).]

2. Meeting ratified by a director.  If a meeting otherwise valid of the board of directors or of any committee is held without call or notice where such is required, any action taken at such meeting shall be deemed ratified by a director or committee member who did not attend, unless, after learning of the action taken and of the impropriety of the meeting, he makes prompt objection thereto.
[ 1977, c. 525, §13 (NEW) .]
3. Objections in writing to secretary of corporation.  Objection by a member, director or committee member shall be effective only if written objection to the holding of the meeting or to any specific action so taken is filed with the clerk or the secretary of the corporation.
