(A) The guaranty fund created pursuant to Substitute Senate Bill No. 113 of the 116th general assembly shall hereafter be known as the savings and loan assurance corporation.
(B) The corporation shall be governed by a board of trustees, which shall consist of five members.
Of these trustees, two shall be appointed by the director of commerce, two shall be appointed by the Ohio savings and loan league, both of whom shall be a representative of an association that has reopened for business pursuant to division (A) of section 1155.22 of the Revised Code, and one shall be appointed by the original four trustees from among the general public. The original four trustees shall meet to appoint the public member, who shall have no interest in a building and loan association as an officer, director, or a holder of permanent shares of any association. As soon as all five trustees have been appointed, the board shall organize by electing one of its members as its chairman.
(C) Of the trustees initially appointed to the corporation, one each of the appointees of the director and the league shall hold office for a term ending two years after the effective date of this section, the other of such appointees shall hold office for terms ending three years after the effective date of this section, and the public member shall hold office for a term ending four years after the effective date of this section. Thereafter, terms of office shall be for four years, each term ending on the same day of the same month of the year as did the term which it succeeds. Each trustee shall hold office from the date of his appointment until the end of the term for which he was appointed. Any trustee appointed to fill a vacancy occurring prior to the expiration of the term for which his predecessor was appointed shall hold office for the remainder of such term. A trustee shall continue in office subsequent to the expiration date of his term until his successor takes office, or until a period of sixty days has elapsed, whichever occurs first. A vacancy shall be filled in the same manner as the original appointment. Three trustees constitute a quorum.
(D) There shall be no liability imposed on the part of, and no cause of action of any nature arises against, the savings association guaranty fund created pursuant to Substitute Senate Bill No. 113 of the 116th general assembly, or such funds as reorganized by Substitute Senate Bill No. 143 of the 116th general assembly as the savings and loan assurance corporation, its board of trustees, officers, agents, or employees, for any statements made in good faith by them in any reports or communications concerning institutions subject to sections 1155.23 to 1155.31 of the Revised Code, or for any administrative actions conducted in connection therewith.
(E) Chapter 1702. of the Revised Code, and all powers and rights under such chapter, apply to the corporation and its formation, except where Chapter 1702. of the Revised Code is in conflict with sections 1155.23 to 1155.31 of the Revised Code.
