Special meetings may be called at any time by a majority of the directors, and must be called by the clerk upon written request of 25 members or 5% of the total members entitled to vote as of the date of request, whichever number is greater. Notwithstanding this section, the maximum number of members required to call a special meeting may not exceed 500. Notice of all meetings of the members must be given in the manner prescribed in the bylaws.
