(A) The superintendent of financial institutions may call and convene a meeting with the regulated persons the superintendent determines to be appropriate at a location within this state and at a date and time established by the superintendent upon notice served in accordance with section 1121.37 of the Revised Code. The regulated persons notified of the meeting shall attend the meeting unless excused by the superintendent for reasonable cause at the superintendent's sole discretion.

(B) If a quorum of the board of directors of a bank or an affiliate of a bank attends a meeting called and convened by the superintendent pursuant to division (A) of this section, they may convene a meeting of the board of directors to address matters related to the superintendent's meeting, notwithstanding any contrary provision of the bank's articles of incorporation, code of regulations, or bylaws related to notice of a board of directors meeting.

(C) The records of any meeting called and convened in accordance with division (A) of this section and the discussions, information, and documentation presented at the meeting are, in the possession of any person, confidential and privileged and shall not be disclosed except as provided in section 1121.18 of the Revised Code.
