INDEMNIFICATION AND INSURANCE 

Section 1 Right to Indemnification.  Subject to  any limitations and conditions contained in the Articles or the Bylaws, including, without limitation, this Article V, each person who was or is made a party or is threatened to be made a party or is involved in any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative, arbitrative or investigative (hereinafter a "Proceeding"), or any appeal of a Proceeding or any inquiry or investigation that could lead to a Proceeding, by reason of the fact that he or she, or a person of whom he or she is the legal representative, is or was a member of the Board of Directors or officer of the Corporation, or while a member of the Board of Directors or officer of the Corporation is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, partner, venturer, proprietor, trustee, employee, agent, or similar functionary of another foreign or domestic corporation, partnership, joint venture, sole proprietorship, trust, employee benefit plan or other enterprise, shall be indemnified by the Corporation to the fullest extent authorized by the Act, (but, in the case of any amendment of the Act, only to the extent that amendment permits the Corporation to provide broader indemnification rights than said law permitted the Corporation to provide prior to such amendment) against judgments, penalties (including excise and similar taxes), fines, settlements and reasonable expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees) actually incurred by such person in connection with a Proceeding, but if the Proceeding was brought by or in behalf of the Corporation, the indemnification is limited to reasonable expenses actually incurred or suffered by such person in connection therewith, and indemnification under these Bylaws shall continue as to a person who has ceased to serve in the capacity which initially entitled such person to indemnity hereunder.  In no case, however, shall the Corporation indemnify any person, or the legal representatives of any such person, with respect to any matters as to which such person shall be finally adjudged in any such Proceeding to be liable on the basis that personal benefit resulted from an action taken in such person's official capacity, or in which such person is found liable to the Corporation.  Any person entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Article V is sometimes referred to herein as an "Indemnified Person." 

Section 2 Advance Payment.  An Indemnified Person's right to indemnification conferred in this Article V shall include the right to be paid or reimbursed by the Corporation the reasonable expenses incurred by an Indemnified Person who was, is or is threatened to be made a named defendant or respondent in a Proceeding in advance of the final disposition of the Proceeding; provided, however, that the payment of such expenses incurred by an Indemnified Person in advance of the final disposition of a Proceeding shall be made only upon delivery to the Corporation of a written affirmation by such Indemnified Person of such person's good faith belief that such person has met the standard of conduct necessary for indemnification under this Article V and a written undertaking by or on behalf of such Indemnified Person to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined that such Indemnified Person is not entitled to be indemnified under this Article V or otherwise.

Section 8 Limitation on Indemnity.  Notwithstanding any provision of this Article V to the contrary, the liability of the Corporation under this Article V is limited to the proceeds and benefits of insurance, if any, actually paid or received with respect to the matter or event giving rise to the Proceeding which constitutes a basis for the indemnity provided for in this Article V; provided, the Board of Directors may, in the exercise of its sole discretion, waive or qualify this limitation in specific cases.
 

ARTICLE VI

 CONFLICTS OF INTEREST POLICY 

Section 1.  Purpose.  The purpose of the conflicts of interest policy is to protect the Corporation’s interest when it is contemplating entering into a transaction or arrangement that might benefit the private interest of an officer or Director of the Corporation.  This policy is intended to supplement but not replace any applicable state laws governing conflicts of interest applicable to nonprofit and charitable corporations.

(3)       After exercising due diligence, the Board of Directors or committee shall determine whether the Corporation can obtain a more advantageous transaction or arrangement with reasonable efforts from a person or entity that would not give rise to a conflict of interest. 

(4)       If a more advantageous transaction or arrangement is not reasonably attainable under circumstances that would not give rise to a conflict of interest, the Board of Directors or committee shall determine by a majority vote of the disinterested Directors whether the transaction or arrangement is in the Corporation’s best interest and for its own benefit and whether the transaction is fair and reasonable to the Corporation and shall make its decision as to whether to enter into the transaction or arrangement in conformity with such determination.

(2)       If, after hearing the response of the member and making such further investigation as may be warranted in the circumstances, the Board of Directors or committee determines that the member has in fact failed to disclose an actual or possible conflict of interest, it shall take appropriate disciplinary and corrective action.
