HOUSE BILL No. 2695

An Act relating to banks and banking; concerning the board of directors; amending

K.S.A. 9-1114 and repealing the existing section.


Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:

Section 1. K.S.A. 9-1114 is hereby amended to read as follows: 9-

1114. The business of any bank or trust company shall be managed and

controlled by its board of directors and this shall include the authority to

provide for bonus payments, in addition to ordinary compensation for any

or all of its officers and employees. The board shall consist of not less

than five nor more than 25 members who shall be elected by the stock-

holders at any regular annual meeting which shall be held on such date

of each calendar year as the bank or trust company may specify in its

bylaws. If the date specified in the bylaws falls on a legal holiday, the

meeting shall be held, and the directors elected, on the next following

business day. If for any reason the election of directors is not made on

the day fixed, or in the event of a legal holiday, on the next business day,

an election may be held on any subsequent day within 60 days of the day

fixed, to be designated by the board of directors, or, if the directors fail

to fix the day, by the shareholders representing 2/3 of the shares. In all

cases, at least 10 days' notice of the date for the annual meeting shall

have been given by first-class mail to the shareholders. If the number of

directors elected is less than 25, the number of directors may be increased

so long as the total number does not exceed 25 and when the number is

increased the first additional directors may be elected at a special meeting

of the stockholders. The directors shall be elected in the manner provided

in the general corporation code. Vacancies in the board of directors may

be filled in the manner provided in the general corporation code. A ma-

jority of the directors shall be residents of this state. Any director of any

bank or trust company who shall become indebted to such bank or trust

company on any judgment or whose indebtedness is charged off indebt-

edness or forgiven shall forfeit such person's position as director and such

vacancy shall be filled as provided by law.

Sec. 2. K.S.A. 9-1114 is hereby repealed.

Sec. 3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its

publication in the statute book.

Approved March 27, 2002.
