MEETINGS OF STOCKHOLDERS
Section 2.1. All annual meetings of stockholders shall be held at the offices of the corporation in the City of Vernon, State of California, or at such other place as from time to time may be designated by resolution of the board of directors. Special meetings of the stockholders may be held at such time and place, within or without the State of Nevada, as may be stated in the notice of the meeting or in a duly executed waiver of notice thereof.
Section 2.2. Annual meetings of stockholders shall be held at such time and date as may be designated by the board of directors, at which the stockholders shall elect directors and transact such other business as may properly be brought before the meeting.
Section 2.3. Special meetings of the stockholders, for any purpose or purposes, unless otherwise prescribed by Title 7, Chapter 78 of the Nevada Revised Statutes (the “NRS”) or by the articles of incorporation, may be called by the chairman of the board of directors, or the president, a majority of the board of directors and shall be called by the president or secretary at the request in writing of a majority of the board of directors, or at the request in writing of stockholders owning a majority in amount of the entire capital stock of the corporation issued and outstanding and entitled to vote. Such request shall state the purpose or purposes of the proposed meeting.
Section 2.4. Notices of meetings shall be in writing and signed by the president, a vice president, the secretary, an assistant secretary, or by such other natural person or persons as the directors shall designate. Such notice shall state the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called and the time when, and the place, which may be within or without the State of Nevada, where it is to be held. A copy of such notice shall be either delivered personally to, or shall be mailed postage prepaid to, each stockholder of record entitled to vote at such meeting not less than ten (10) nor more than sixty (60) days before such meeting. If mailed, it shall be directed to a stockholder at his address as it appears upon the records of the corporation, and upon such mailing of any such notice, the service thereof shall be complete, and the time of the notice shall begin to run from the date upon which such notice is deposited in the mail for transmission to such stockholder. Personal delivery of any such notice to any officer of a corporation or association, or to any member of a partnership, shall constitute delivery of such notice to such corporation, association or partnership. In the event of the transfer of stock after delivery or mailing of the notice of and prior to the holding of the meeting, it shall not be necessary to deliver or mail notice of the meeting to the transferee.
Section 2.5. Business transacted at any special meeting shall be limited to the purposes stated in the notice.
Section 2.6. The holders of a majority of the stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote thereat, present in person or represented by proxy, regardless of whether the proxy has authority to vote on all matters, shall constitute a quorum at all meetings of the stockholders for the transaction of business except as otherwise provided by statute or by the articles of incorporation. If, however, a quorum shall not be present or represented at any meeting of the stockholders, the stockholders entitled to vote thereat, present in person or represented by proxy, shall have power to adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, unless required by law, until a quorum shall be present or represented. At such adjourned meeting at which a quorum shall be present or represented, any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the meeting as originally notified.
Section 2.7. All elections for directors shall be determined by a plurality of the votes cast. Except as otherwise required by law or the articles of incorporation, action by the stockholders on a matter other than the election of directors is approved if the number of votes cast in favor of the action exceeds the number of votes cast in opposition to the action.
Section 2.8. Each outstanding share, regardless of class, shall be entitled to one vote on each matter submitted to a vote at a meeting of stockholders, except to the extent that voting rights of any class are increased, limited or denied by the articles of incorporation, as amended, or the NRS.
Section 2.9. Unless otherwise provided in the NRS or the articles of incorporation, any action required or permitted to be taken at a meeting of common stockholders may be taken without a meeting if, before the action is taken, the board of directors approves the action and a written consent thereto is signed by stockholders holding at least a majority of the voting power of the outstanding common stock, except that if a different proportion of voting power is required for such an action at a meeting, then that proportion of written consents is required.
Notwithstanding anything contained in Section 2.10 of these bylaws, for the purpose of determining stockholders entitled to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, the board of directors may fix a record date, which record date shall not precede the date upon which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the board of directors and which record date shall not be more than ten (10) days from the date upon which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the board of directors. If no record date is fixed, the record date for determining stockholders entitled to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting when no prior action of the board of directors is required, shall be the first date on which a signed written consent setting forth the action taken or proposed to be taken is delivered to the corporation in accordance with applicable law, or, if prior action of the board of directors is required, shall be at the close of business on the day on which the board of directors adopts the resolution taking such prior action. To be valid, a consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting must be delivered to or mailed and received at the principal executive offices of the corporation not less than sixty (60) days after the earliest date that a stockholder signed the consent.
Section 2.10. For the purpose of determining stockholders entitled to notice of, or to vote at, any meeting of stockholders or any adjournment thereof, or entitled to receive payment of any dividend or other distribution or allotment of any rights, or entitled to exercise any rights in respect of any change, conversion or exchange of stock or for the purpose of any other lawful action, or in order to make a determination of stockholders for any other proper purpose, the board of directors may provide that the stock transfer books of the corporation shall be closed for a stated period but not to exceed in any event sixty (60) days. If the stock transfer books are closed for the purpose of determining stockholders entitled to notice of, or to vote at, a meeting of stockholders, such books shall be closed for at least ten (10) days immediately preceding such meeting. In lieu of closing the stock transfer books, the board of directors may fix in advance a date as the record date for any such determination of stockholders, such date in any case to be not more than sixty (60) days and, in the case of a meeting of stockholders, not less than ten (10) days prior to the date on which the particular action requiring such determination of stockholders is to be taken. If the stock transfer books are not closed and if no record date is fixed for the determination of stockholders entitled to notice of, or to vote at, a meeting of stockholders or entitled to receive a distribution (other than a distribution involving a purchase or redemption by the corporation of any of its own shares) or a share dividend, the date on which the notice of the meeting is mailed or the date on which the resolution of the board of directors declaring such distribution or share dividend is adopted, as the case may be, shall be the record date for such determination of stockholders. If notice is waived by the stockholders, the record date is the close of business on the day before the meeting is held. A determination of stockholders of record entitled to notice of, or to vote at, a meeting of stockholders shall apply to any adjournment of the meeting; provided, however, that the board of directors may fix a new record date for the adjourned meeting. The board of directors must fix a new record date if the meeting is adjourned to a date more than sixty (60) days later than the date set for the original meeting.
Section 2.11. At an annual meeting of stockholders, only such business shall be conducted as shall have been brought before the meeting in accordance with the articles of incorporation, as amended.
Section 3.1. The number of directors shall be neither more than ten (10) nor less than three (3), as such number may be from time to time specified by resolution of the board of directors; provided, however, that no director’s term shall be shortened by reason of a resolution reducing the number of directors. The number of directors constituting the board of directors shall be five (5), and shall remain at such number until changed by resolution of the board of directors as aforesaid. The directors shall be elected at the annual meeting of the stockholders or at such other time as reasonably determined by the board of directors, and except as provided in Section 3.2 of this Article, each director elected shall hold office until his successor is elected and qualified. Directors need not be stockholders.
Nominations of persons for election to the board of directors may be made by the board of directors, by a nominating committee established by the board of directors or by any stockholder of the corporation entitled to vote for the election of directors. Any stockholder of the corporation entitled to vote for the election of directors at a meeting may nominate persons for election as directors only in accordance with the articles of incorporation, as amended.
Section 3.2. Vacancies, including those caused by an increase in the number of directors, may be filled by a majority of the remaining directors though less than a quorum. When one or more directors shall give notice of his or their resignation to the board of directors, effective at a future date, the board of directors shall have the power to fill such vacancy or vacancies to take effect when such resignation or resignations shall become effective, each director so appointed to hold office during the remainder of the term of office of the resigning director or directors.
Section 3.3. The board of directors of the corporation may hold meetings, both regular and special, either within or without the State of Nevada.

Section 3.7. A majority of the directors then in office, at a meeting duly assembled, shall be necessary to constitute a quorum for the transaction of business and the act of a majority of the directors present at any meeting at which a quorum is present shall be the act of the board of directors, except as may be otherwise specifically provided by statute or by the articles of incorporation. Any action required or permitted to be taken at a meeting of the directors may be taken without a meeting if a consent in writing, setting forth the action so taken, shall be signed by all of the directors entitled to vote with respect to the subject matter thereof. Members of the board of directors or of any committee designated by the board of directors may participate in a meeting of the board of directors or committee by means of a telephone conference or similar method of communication by which all persons participating in the meeting can hear each other. Participation in such a meeting shall constitute presence in person at the meeting, except where a person participates in the meeting for the express purpose of objecting to the transaction of any business on the ground that the meeting is not lawfully called or convened.
Section 3.8. The board of directors may, by resolution passed by a majority of the number of directors then authorized, designate one or more committees, each committee to consist of one or more of the directors of the corporation, which, to the extent provided in the resolution, shall have and may exercise the powers of the board of directors in the management of the business and affairs of the corporation, and may have power to authorize the seal of the corporation to be affixed to all papers which may require it. Such committee or committees shall have such name or names as may be determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the board of directors.
Section 3.9. The committees shall keep regular minutes of their proceedings and report the same to the board of directors when required.
Section 3.10. The directors may be paid their expenses, if any, of attendance at each meeting of the board of directors and may be paid a fixed sum for attendance at each meeting of the board of directors or a stated salary as director. No such payment shall preclude any director from serving the corporation in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor. Members of special or standing committees may be allowed like compensation for attending committee meetings.
Section 4.1. Whenever all parties entitled to vote at any meeting, whether of directors or stockholders, consent, either by a writing on the records of the meeting or filed with the secretary, or by presence at such meeting and oral consent entered on the minutes, or by taking part in the deliberations at such meeting without objection, the doings of such meeting shall be as valid as if had at a meeting regularly called and noticed, and at such meeting any business may be transacted which is not excepted from the written consent or to the consideration of which no objection for want of notice is made at the time, and if any meeting be irregular for want of notice or of such consent, provided a quorum was present at such meeting, the proceedings of said meeting may be ratified and approved and rendered likewise valid and the irregularity or defect therein waived by a writing signed by all parties having the right to vote at such meetings; and such consent or approval of stockholders may be by proxy or attorney, but all such proxies and powers of attorney must be in writing.
Section 4.2. Whenever any notice is required to be given under the provisions of the statutes, of the articles of incorporation or of these bylaws, a waiver thereof in writing, signed by the person or persons entitled to said notice, whether before or after the time stated therein, shall be deemed equivalent thereto.

Within a reasonable time after the issuance or transfer of shares without certificates, the corporation shall send the stockholder a written statement containing the information required on the certificates pursuant to Section 6.1 of these bylaws. At least annually thereafter, the corporation shall provide to its stockholders of record, a written statement confirming the information contained in the informational statement previously sent pursuant to this subsection.
