  2.  The directors of a company named in any articles of incorporation, consolidation, merger or conversion, as the case may be, shall hold office until the next following annual meeting of the members or until their successors shall have been elected and qualified.

  3.  The bylaws shall provide that the directors shall be divided into three classes, each class to be as nearly equal in number as possible, with the term of office of the directors of the first class to expire at the next succeeding annual meeting, the term of the second class to expire at the second succeeding annual meeting and the term of the third class to expire at the third succeeding annual meeting.  At each annual meeting after such classification, a number of directors equal to the number of the class whose term expires at the time of such meeting shall be elected to hold office until the third succeeding annual meeting.

  4.  A majority of the board of directors shall constitute a quorum.

  5.  The board of directors may exercise all of the powers of a company except those conferred upon the members by sections 393.900 to 393.951, its articles of incorporation or its bylaws.  Nothing in sections 393.900 to 393.951 shall be deemed to prohibit a nonprofit water company from contracting with any other person or entity for any services needed by the nonprofit water company including, but not limited to, management or operations services.
