1151.46 Amendment of articles and constitution.

A building and loan association may amend its articles of incorporation and its constitution, and may increase or decrease the number of its directors by complying with the requirements of its own constitution for the amendment thereof. The officers of such association shall be such as its constitution provides.

The constitution of a building and loan association which has no permanent stock may provide for the amendment of its articles of incorporation and its constitution by providing that such articles of incorporation or constitution may be amended at any meeting of the members for which notice has been properly given in accordance with section 1151.11 of the Revised Code and such amendment is adopted by at least a three-fifths vote of the votes cast in person or by proxy at the meeting so called. The number of votes which each member may cast shall be determined by such constitution. Regardless of any provisions in its existing constitution for the amendment thereof or the lack of any such provision, such a building and loan association may adopt such a provision for the amendment of its articles of incorporation and its constitution at any meeting authorized in writing by a majority of its members of record held upon written notice made in accordance with section 1701.41 of the Revised Code stating the proposed action to be taken at such meeting in a form approved by the superintendent of building and loan associations by a two-thirds vote of the votes cast authorizing such meeting provided that a majority of the members of record is present in person or by proxy at such meeting.
