The number of trustees of Jewish congregations and voting by proxy at certain meetings thereof
Religious Corporations (RCO) CHAPTER 51, ARTICLE 10
§ 207. The number of trustees of Jewish congregations and voting by
proxy at certain meetings thereof. A congregation of the Jewish faith
may at any general or special corporate meeting thereof change the
number of its trustees to not more than seventy-two and classify them so
that the terms of one-third shall expire each year and the trustees
elected shall hold office for three years. Whenever the number of
trustees in office is less than the number determined on, sufficient
additional trustees shall be elected to make the total number of
trustees equal to the number determined on. The additional trustees so
to be elected shall be classified and hold office for such terms, not
exceeding three years each, so that the terms of one-third of the total
number of trustees shall expire each year, and thereafter for a term of
three years each. The right of the members of such congregation to vote
at meetings thereof shall be fixed by its by-laws, but every member of
such congregation entitled to vote at any meeting thereof may vote by
proxy on any proposition to sell, mortgage or lease any of its property
or for its consolidation with one or more other religious corporations
of the Jewish faith, or, in a city having a population of one million or
more according to the latest federal census, in any election of trustees
or officers. Every proxy must be executed in writing by the member
conferring the same and shall not be given to any person other than a
member of the congregation. No proxy shall be valid after the expiration
of one year from the date of its execution. Every proxy shall be
revocable at the pleasure of the person executing it.
