  2.  Any notice which conforms to the requirements of subsection 3 of this section is fair and reasonable, but other means of giving notice may also be fair and reasonable when all the circumstances are considered; provided, however, that notice of matters referred to in subdivision (2) of subsection 3 of this section must be given as provided in subsection 3 of this section.

  3.  Notice is fair and reasonable if:

  (1)  The corporation notifies its members of the place, date and time of each annual, regular and special meeting of members no fewer than ten, or if notice is mailed by other than first-class or registered mail, thirty, nor more than sixty days before the meeting date;
