NONPROFIT CORPORATION ACT (EXCERPT)
Act 162 of 1982
450.2511 Removal of director or entire board.
(1) Unless otherwise provided in the articles of incorporation or bylaws, a director or the entire board may be removed:
(a) With or without cause, by vote of the holders of a majority of the shares or by majority vote of members entitled to vote at an election of directors.
(b) With cause, by the vote of a majority of the directors then in office in the case of a corporation organized upon a directorship basis.
(2) In the case of a corporation having cumulative voting, if less than the entire board is to be removed, no 1 of the directors may be removed if the votes cast against the director's removal would be sufficient to elect the director if then cumulatively voted at an election of the entire board of directors, or, if there are classes of directors, at an election of the class of directors of which the director is a part.
(3) When shareholders or members of a class are entitled by the articles or a bylaw adopted pursuant to section 506(2) to elect 1 or more directors, this section applies, with respect to removal of a director so elected, to the vote of the holders of the outstanding shares or members of that class and not to the vote of the outstanding shares or membership as a whole.
