The plan shall be prepared in writing setting forth in full the terms and conditions thereof. The board of directors shall submit the plan to the supreme legislative or governing body of the society at any regular or special meeting thereof, by giving a full, true, and complete copy of the plan with the notice of the meeting. The notice shall be given as provided in the laws of the society for the convocation of a regular or special meeting of the body, as the case may be. The affirmative vote of two-thirds of all members of the body shall be necessary for the approval of the agreement.
