(a) The principal office of a domestic society must be located in this state. The meetings of the supreme governing body of a society may be held in a state, district, province, or territory in which the society has at least one subordinate lodge or in another location as determined by the supreme governing body. All business transacted at the meetings is as valid in all respects as if the meetings were held in this state. The minutes of the proceedings of the supreme governing body and of the board of directors must conform to language requirements for documents filed under AS 21.84.070 .

(b) A society may provide in its laws for an official publication in which any notice, report, or statement required by law to be given to members, including notice of election, may be published. If published in the official publication, required reports, notices, and statements shall be printed conspicuously. If the records of a society show that two or more members have the same mailing address, an official publication mailed to one member is considered to be mailed to all members at the same address unless a member requests a separate copy.

(c) A synopsis of the society's annual statement providing an explanation of the facts concerning the condition of the society shall be printed not later than June 1 of each year and mailed to each benefit member of the society or published in the society's official publication.
