Section 1715.33 | Ratification of consolidation agreement.


No agreement for the consolidation of charitable, benevolent, or educational organizations under section 1715.32 of the Revised Code shall be valid until it has been submitted to a separate meeting of the members of each of the component organizations, of which meeting notice has been given according to the form and usage for calling meetings of the component organizations concerned, and ratified by a two-thirds vote of the members present at said meeting, in person or by proxy, entitled to vote according to the regulations or usages of such organizations. In case any of such organizations does not have members, then said agreement shall not be valid until it has been submitted to a meeting of such persons as are authorized to elect the governing body of such organization, of which meeting notice has been given as provided in the preceding sentence, and ratified by two thirds of such persons present at said meeting.

When such agreement has been ratified by each organization which is a party to the proposed united corporation, the clerk or secretary of the ratifying meeting shall certify the record of the proceedings of such meeting and deliver it to the clerk or secretary of the first meeting of the united corporation.
