     NOW THEREFORE, the Board hereby adopts the following resolutions:
     RESOLVED, that Section 2.2 of the Bylaws is hereby amended by adding the following sentence to the end of such Section 2.2:
Only such business shall be conducted at a special shareholder meeting as shall have been brought before such meeting pursuant to the Corporation’s notice of meeting given in accordance with Section 2.3.
     RESOLVED, that the Bylaws are hereby amended by adding the following Section 2.14:
