The special meeting was properly noticed in accordance with Not-For-Profit Corporation Law § 603 (c). The meeting was properly noticed; although it was held on a rescheduled date, the hearing evidence showed that that date was well publicized, the meeting was attended by over 200 congregants and there is no evidence that a member was prevented from voting due to lack of notice ( cf. Matter of Kaminsky, 251 App Div 132, 137-139, affd 277 NY 524). The individuals who voted at the meeting were members of the corporation within the meaning of Religious Corporations Law § 195, the applicability of which is mandated by Religious Corporations Law § 2-b (1) (a). Petitioners presented extensive evidence that those who attended the meeting and voted were regular worshipers who contributed financially to the mosque.
