§31E-7-720. Members' list for meeting.

(a) After fixing a record date for a meeting, a corporation must prepare an alphabetical list of the names of all its members who are entitled to notice of the meeting. The list must be arranged by classes of members, if any, and show the address of and number of votes to which each member is entitled.

(b) The members' list must be available for inspection by any member entitled to vote at the meeting, beginning two business days after notice of the meeting is given for which the list was prepared and continuing through the meeting, at the corporation's principal office or at a place identified in the meeting notice in the city where the meeting will be held. A member entitled to vote at the meeting or his or her agent or attorney is entitled on written demand to inspect and, subject to the requirements of section one thousand five hundred two, article fifteen of this chapter, to copy the list, during regular business hours and at his or her expense, during the period it is available for inspection.

(c) The corporation must make the members' list available at the meeting, and any member entitled to vote at the meeting or his or her agent or attorney is entitled to inspect the list at any time during the meeting or any adjournment.

(d) If the corporation refuses to allow a member entitled to vote at the meeting or his or her agent or attorney to inspect the members' list before or at the meeting, or copy the list as permitted by subsection (b) of this section, the circuit court, on application of the member, may summarily order the inspection or copying at the corporation's expense and may postpone the meeting for which the list was prepared until the inspection or copying is complete.

(e) Refusal or failure to prepare or make available the members' list does not affect the validity of action taken at the meeting.
