  2.  In the case of a consolidation, the board of directors of each credit union party to such plan of consolidation must submit the plan of consolidation to its members according to the procedure described in subsection 1 of this section.

  3.  The director may waive any membership meeting required under subsections 1 and 2 of this section upon the request of the board of directors of any of the merging or consolidating credit unions if the credit union seeking the waiver is in financial difficulty, if its field of membership is being lost or substantially reduced, or if it has only limited potential of growth.
