The articles of incorporation may fix the amount and method of collection of assessments, or may authorize the board of directors to fix the amount thereof, from time to time, and may make them payable at such times or intervals, and upon such notice and by such methods as the directors may prescribe. Assessments may be made enforceable by civil action or by the forfeiture of membership, or both, or by the sale of shares of the capital stock of a stockholder in a corporation that issues shares of stock instead of memberships, when authorized by the articles of incorporation of said corporation, upon notice given in writing twenty (20) days before commencement of such action or such forfeiture. If the articles of incorporation so provide, assessments may be secured by a lien upon real property to which membership rights are appurtenant, if appropriate, or upon the shares of stock of a stockholder or shareholder corporation, when authorized by its articles of incorporation.
