Section 4. Notice of Meetings. There shall be mailed to each shareholder, shown by the books of the Corporation to be a holder of record of voting shares, at the address shown by the books of the Corporation, a notice setting out the date, time and place of each regular meeting and each special meeting, except where the meeting is an adjourned meeting and the date, time and place of the meeting were announced at the time of adjournment, or except as otherwise permitted by statute. This notice shall be mailed at least five (5) days prior thereto and no earlier than sixty (60) days prior thereto. However, notice of a meeting at which a plan or agreement of merger or exchange is to be considered shall be mailed to all shareholders of record, whether or not entitled to vote at the meeting, not less than fourteen (14) days nor more than sixty (60) days prior thereto. Every notice of any special meeting called pursuant to this Section shall state the purpose or purposes for which the meeting has been called, and the business transacted at all special meetings shall be confined to the purpose notice. In addition, the notice of a meeting at which a plan or agreement of merger or exchange is to be voted upon shall state that a purpose of the meeting is to consider the proposed plan or agreement of merger or exchange and a copy or a short description of the plan or agreement of merger or exchange shall be included in or enclosed with the notice. Notice may be given to a shareholder by means of electronic communication if the requirements of Minnesota Statutes Section 302A.436, Subdivision 5, as amended from time to time, are satisfied. Notice to a shareholder is also effectively given if the notice is addressed to the shareholder or a group of shareholders in a manner permitted by the rules and regulations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended from time to time.

Section 5. Waiver of Notice. A shareholder may waive notice of a meeting of shareholders. A waiver of notice by a shareholder entitled to notice is effective whether given before, at, or after the meeting, and whether given in writing, orally, or by attendance. Attendance by a shareholder at a meeting is a waiver of notice of that meeting, except where the shareholder objects at the beginning of the meeting to the transaction of business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened, or objects before a vote on an item of business because the item may not lawfully be considered at that meeting and does not participate in the consideration of the item at that meeting.

Section 6. Quorum; Adjourned Meetings. The holders of a majority of the voting power of the shares entitled to vote, present in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at any regular or special meeting.

If a quorum is present, a meeting may be adjourned from time to time without notice other than announcement at the meeting. At adjourned meetings at which a quorum is present, any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the meeting as originally noticed. If a quorum is present when a duly called or held meeting is convened, the shareholders present may continue to transact business until adjournment, even though the withdrawal of a number of shareholders originally present leaves less than a quorum.

Section 7. Voting. At each meeting of the shareholders every shareholder having the right to vote shall be entitled to vote either in person or by proxy, but no proxy shall be valid after eleven (11) months unless a longer period is expressly provided for in the appointment. Each shareholder, unless the Articles of Incorporation or statute provide otherwise, shall have one vote for each share having voting power registered in such shareholder’s name on the books of the Corporation. Jointly owned shares may be voted by any joint owner unless the Corporation receives written notice from any one of them denying the authority of that person to vote those shares. All questions shall be decided by a majority vote of the voting power of the shares present and entitled to vote and represented at the meeting at the time of the vote except if otherwise required by statute, the Articles of Incorporation, or these Bylaws.

Section 8. Record Date. The Board of Directors may fix a date, not exceeding sixty (60) days preceding the date of any meeting of shareholders, as a record date for the determination of the shareholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, such meeting, notwithstanding any transfer of shares on the books of the Corporation after any record date so fixed. If the Board of Directors fails to fix a record date for determination of the shareholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, any meeting of shareholders, the record date shall be the twentieth (20th) day preceding the date of such meeting.

Section 9. Organization of Meetings. Unless a Chairman of the Board has been elected, at all meetings of the shareholders the Chief Executive Officer shall act as Chairman, and in the Chief Executive Officer’s absence any person appointed by the Board of Directors or the Chief Executive Officer shall act as Chairman, and the Secretary, or in the Secretary’s absence any person appointed by the Chairman, shall act as Secretary.

Section 10. Action Without a Meeting. Any action which may lawfully be taken at a shareholders’ meeting may be taken without a meeting if authorized by a writing or writings signed by all of the holders of shares who would be entitled to a notice of a meeting for such purpose. Such action shall be effective on the date on which the last signature is placed on such writing or writings, or such earlier effective date as is set forth therein. If any action so taken requires a certificate to be filed in the office of the Secretary of State, the officer signing the same shall state therein that the action was effected in the manner aforesaid.

Section 11. Conference Communications. Any or all shareholders may participate in and be present at any meeting of the shareholders by any means of communication through which the shareholders may simultaneously hear each other during such meeting. For the purposes of establishing a quorum and taking any action at the meeting, such shareholders participating pursuant to this Section 11 shall be deemed present in person at the meeting, and the place of the meeting shall be the place of origination of the conference communication.

Section 12. Advisory Shareholder Votes. Notwithstanding Article II, Section 7 of these Bylaws, this Bylaw shall govern the tabulation and effect of shareholder action on advisory questions presented to the shareholders. All advisory questions presented to the shareholders shall be decided by a plurality of the voting power participating in such vote, with abstentions and broker non-votes being disregarded in the tabulation of such votes. The approval or rejection of an advisory question presented to the shareholders shall not be binding on the Corporation or the Board of Directors.

Board of Directors

Section 1. General Powers. The business and affairs of the corporation shall be managed by or under its Board of Directors, which may exercise all such powers of the Corporation and do all such lawful acts and things as are not by statute or by the Articles of Incorporation or by these Bylaws required to be exercised or done by the shareholders.

Section 2. Number; Qualification and Term of Office. Until the first meeting of shareholders, the number of directors shall be the number named in the Articles of Incorporation or, if no such number is named therein, the number elected by the incorporator. Thereafter, the number of directors shall be established by resolution of the shareholders (subject to the authority of the Board of Directors to increase or decrease the number of directors as permitted by law). In the absence of such shareholder resolution, the number of directors shall be the number last fixed by the shareholders, the Board of Directors, the incorporator or the Articles of Incorporation. Directors need not be shareholders. Each of the directors shall hold office until the regular meeting of shareholders next held after such director’s election or appointment and until such director’s successor shall have been elected and shall qualify, or until the earlier death, resignation, removal, or disqualification of such director; provided, however, that no director shall be elected to a term in excess of five years.

Section 3. Board Meetings. Meetings of the Board of Directors may be held from time to time at such time and place within or without the State of Minnesota as may be designated in the notice of such meeting.

Section 4. Calling Meetings; Notice.

Section 5. Waiver of Notice. Notice of any meeting of the Board of Directors may be waived by any director either before, at, or after such meeting orally, in a writing signed by such director, or by attendance at the meeting. A director, by attendance at any meeting of the Board of Directors, shall be deemed to have waived notice of such meeting, except where the director objects at the beginning of the meeting to the transaction of business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened and does not participate thereafter in the meeting.

Section 6. Quorum. A majority of the directors holding office immediately prior to a meeting of the Board of Directors shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at such meeting. In the absence of a quorum, the majority of the directors present may adjourn a meeting from time to time until a quorum is present.

Section 7. Absent Directors. A director may give advance written consent or opposition to a proposal to be acted on at a meeting of the Board of Directors. If such director is not present at the meeting, consent or opposition to a proposal does not constitute presence for purposes of determining the existence of a quorum, but consent or opposition shall be counted as a vote in favor of or against the proposal and shall be entered in the minutes or other record of action at the meeting, if the proposal acted on at the meeting is substantially the same or has substantially the same effect as the proposal to which the director has consented or objected.

Section 8. Conference Communications. Any or all directors may participate in and be present at any meeting of the Board of Directors, or of any duly constituted committee thereof, by any means of communication through which the directors may simultaneously hear each other during such meeting. For the purposes of establishing a quorum and taking any action at the meeting, such directors participating pursuant to this Section 8 shall be deemed present in person at the meeting, and the place of the meeting shall be the place of origination of the conference communication.

Section 9. Vacancies; Newly Created Directorships. Vacancies in the Board of Directors of this Corporation resulting from the death, resignation, removal or disqualification of a director may be filled by the affirmative vote of a majority of the remaining directors, although less than a quorum; newly created directorships resulting from an increase in the authorized number of directors by action of the shareholders, or by action of the Board of Directors as permitted by Section 2, may be filled by a majority of the directors serving at the time of such increase. Each such director elected or appointed pursuant to this Section 9 shall hold office until the first regular meeting of the shareholders held after such appointment.

Section 10. Removal. Any or all of the directors may be removed from office at any time, with or without cause, by the affirmative vote of the shareholders holding a majority of the shares entitled to vote at an election of directors except, as otherwise provided by Minnesota Statutes, Section 302A.223, as amended, when the shareholders have the right to cumulate their votes. A director named by the Board of Directors to fill a vacancy may be removed from office at any time, with or without cause, by the affirmative vote of a majority of the remaining directors if the director was named by the Board of Directors to fill the vacancy and the shareholders have not elected directors in the interim between the time of the appointment to fill such vacancy and the time of the removal. In the event that the entire Board of Directors or any one or more directors be so removed, new directors may be elected at the same meeting.

Section 11. Committees. A resolution approved by the affirmative vote of a majority of the Board of Directors may establish committees having the authority of the Board of Directors in the management of the business of the Corporation to the extent provided in the resolution. A committee shall consist of one or more persons, who need not be directors, appointed by affirmative vote of a majority of the directors present. Committees may include a special litigation committee consisting of one or more independent directors or other independent persons to consider legal rights or remedies of the Corporation and whether those rights and remedies should be pursued. Committees, other than special litigation committees, are subject to the direction and control of, and vacancies in the membership thereof shall be filled by, the Board of Directors. A majority of the members of the committee present at a meeting is a quorum for the transaction of business, unless a larger or smaller proportion or number is provided in a resolution approved by the affirmative vote of a majority of the directors present.

Section 12. Written Action. An action required or permitted to be taken at a meeting of the Board of Directors may be taken by written action signed by all of the directors unless the action need not be approved by the shareholders and the Articles of Incorporation so provide, in which case the action may be taken by written action signed by the number of directors that would be required to take the same action at a meeting of the Board of Directors at which all directors were present. The written action is effective when signed by the required number of directors, unless a different effective time is provided in the written action. When written action is permitted to be taken by less than all directors, all directors shall be notified immediately of its text and effective date. Failure to provide the notice does not invalidate the written action. A director who does not sign or consent to the written action has no liability for the action or actions taken thereby.

Section 13. Resignations. Any director of the Corporation may resign at any time by giving written notice to the Secretary of the Corporation. Such resignation shall take effect at the date of the receipt of such notice, or at any later time specified therein, and, unless otherwise specified therein, the acceptance of such resignation shall not be necessary to make it effective.

Section 14. Compensation of Directors. By resolution of the Board of Directors, each director may be paid the expenses they have incurred, if any, of attendance at each meeting of the Board of Directors, and may be paid a stated amount as director or a fixed sum for attendance at each meeting of tile Board of Directors, or both. No such payment shall preclude a director from serving the Corporation in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor. Members of special or standing committees may be allowed, pursuant to resolution by the Board of Directors, like compensation for attending committee meetings.

Section 15. Nomination of Directors. Nominations for the election of directors may be made by the Board of Directors or a committee appointed by the Board of Directors or by any shareholder entitled to vote in the election of directors generally. Any shareholder entitled to vote in the election of directors generally may nominate one or more persons for election as directors at a meeting at which directors are to be elected only if written notice of such shareholder’s intent to make such nomination or nominations has been given, either by personal delivery or by certified or registered United States mail, postage prepaid and return receipt requested, to the Secretary of the Corporation not later than (i) with respect to an election to be held at a regular meeting of shareholders, ninety (90) days prior to the anniversary date of the immediately preceding regular meeting of the shareholders, and (ii) with respect to an election to be held at a special meeting of shareholders for the election of directors, the close of business on the earlier of the tenth (10th) day following the date on which notice of such meeting is first given to shareholders, or three (3) days prior to the date of the meeting. Each such notice shall set forth: (a) the name and address of the shareholder who intends to make the nomination and of the person or persons to be nominated; (b) a representation that the shareholder is a holder of record of stock of the Corporation entitled to vote at such meeting and intends to appear in person or by proxy at the meeting to nominate the person or persons specified in the notice; (c) a description of all arrangements or understandings between the shareholder and each nominee and any other person or persons (naming such person or persons) pursuant to which the nomination
