The arbitrators set a time and place for the hearing and a notification to the parties to be served personally or by registered mail not less than five days before the hearing. The arbitrators may adjourn the hearing from time to time as necessary. A request of a party for good cause or upon their own motion, may postpone the hearing to a time, not to be later than the date fixed by the agreement for making the award unless the parties consent to a late date. The arbitrators may hear and determine the controversy upon the evidence produced notwithstanding the failure of a properly notified party to appear.
