(1) publication in a legal newspaper published in the county of the principal place of business of the cooperative;
(2) publication in a magazine, periodical, or other publication of the cooperative that is regularly published by or on behalf of the cooperative and circulated generally among members; or
(3) mailing the regular members' meeting notice to each member personally at the person's last known post office address, which for a member cooperative means notice mailed to the secretary of the cooperative.
