§19-4-14. Removal of officer or director.
Any member may bring charges against an officer or director
by filing them in writing with the secretary of the association,
together with a petition signed by five percent of the members,
requesting the removal of the officer or director in question.
The removal shall be voted upon at the next regular or special
meeting of the association and, by a vote of a majority of the
members, the association may remove the officer or director and
fill the vacancy. The director or officer against whom such
charges have been brought shall be informed in writing of the
charges previous to the meeting and shall have an opportunity at
the meeting to be heard in person or by counsel and to present
witnesses; and the person or persons bringing the charges against
him shall have the same opportunity.
In case the bylaws provide for election of directors by
districts with primary elections in each district, then the
petition for removal of a director must be signed by twenty
percent of the members residing in the district from which he was
elected. The board of directors must call a special meeting of
the members residing in that district to consider the removal of
the director; and by a vote of the majority of the members of
that district the director in question shall be removed from
