Changing number of trustees
Religious Corporations (RCO) CHAPTER 51, ARTICLE 8
§ 166. Changing number of trustees. Any such incorporated church may,
at an annual corporate meeting, change the number of its trustees to
three, six, nine, twelve or fifteen, classifying them so that the terms
of one-third expire each year, provided that notice of such intended
change be included in the notice of such annual corporate meeting. No
such change shall affect the terms of the trustees then in office; and
if the change reduces the number of trustees, elections shall not be
held to fill the vacancies caused by the expiration of the terms of
trustees, until the number of trustees equals the number to which the
trustees were reduced. Whenever the number of trustees in office is
less than the number so determined on, sufficient additional trustees
shall be elected to make the number of trustees equal to the number so
determined on. The trustees so elected, up to and including one-third of
the number so determined on, shall be elected for three years, the
remainder up to and including one-third of the number so determined on
for two years, and the remainder for one year.
