The call and notice of a special meeting shall be delivered at least 24 hours prior to any meeting and shall specify the time and place of the special meeting and the business to be transacted. No other business shall be considered at these meetings by the governing board or subboard. Written notice may be dispensed with as to any member who, at or prior to the time the meeting convenes, files with the clerk or the secretary of the governing board or subboard a written waiver of notice. The waiver may be given by telegram. Written notice may also be dispensed with as to any member who is actually present at the meeting at the time it convenes.

Any governing board or subboard may hold closed sessions to consider matters relating to litigation, collective bargaining, or the appointment, employment, evaluation of performance, or dismissal of an employee, or to hear complaints or charges brought against an employee by another person or employee, unless the employee requests a public hearing. For the purposes of this section, “employee” does not include any person elected or appointed to an office. A board or subboard, upon a favorable majority vote of its members, may also hold a closed session to discuss investments where a public discussion could have a negative impact on the auxiliary organization’s financial situation. In this case, a final decision shall only be made during public sessions.
