(f) A written notice or report delivered as part of a newsletter, magazine, or other publication regularly sent to members shall constitute a written notice or report (1) if addressed or delivered to the member's address shown in the corporation's current list of members, (2) in the case of members who are residents of the same household and who have the same address in the corporation's current list of members, if addressed or delivered to one of such members at the address appearing on the current list of members, or (3) if electronically transmitted to a member in a manner authorized by the member.

(g) Written notice is correctly addressed to a domestic or foreign corporation (authorized to transact business in this state), other than in its capacity as a member, if addressed to its registered agent or to its secretary at its principal office shown in its most recent biennial report or, in the case of a foreign corporation that has not yet delivered a biennial report, in its application for a certificate of authority.

(h) If any other provision of the Nebraska Nonprofit Corporation Act prescribes notice requirements for particular circumstances, such as subsection (b) of section 21-1955, those requirements govern.
