    update various sections relating to voting rights and procedures, including the advance notice provisions for stockholder Board nominations and for stockholder proposals, and to introduce procedures and requirements for stockholder action taken by written consent;
    require a “majority of whole Board” vs. “majority of Board” with respect to calling a special meeting of stockholders and changing the number of directors;
