Any person who at any time serves or has served as a director, officer, employee or agent of the Association, or in such capacity at the request of the Association for any other association, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, shall have a right to be indemnified by the Association to the fullest extent permitted by law against (a) reasonable expenses, including attorney fees, actually and necessarily incurred by him in connection with any threatened or pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, and whether or not brought by or on behalf of the Association, seeking to hold him liable by reason of the fact that he is or was acting in such capacity, and (b) reasonable payments made by him in satisfaction of any judgment, money decree, fine, penalty, or settlement for which he may become liable in any such action, suit or proceeding.
The Board of Directors of the Association shall take all such action as may be necessary and appropriate to authorize the Association to pay the indemnification required by these By-Laws, including without limitation, to the extent needed, making a good faith evaluation of the manner in which the claimant for indemnity acted and of the reasonable amount of indemnity due him and giving notice to, and obtaining approval of, the members of the Association.
Any person who at any time after the adoption of these By-Laws serves or has served in any of the aforesaid capacities for or on behalf of the Association shall be deemed to be doing or to have done so in reliance upon, and as consideration for, the right of indemnification provided herein. Such right shall inure to the benefit of the legal representatives of any such person and shall not be exclusive of any other rights to which such person may be entitled apart from the provisions of these By-Laws.
The Association shall have authority to assess the members of the Association, in the manner of a special assessment, to collect monies necessary to carry out its obligations in accordance with the indemnity provisions of this Article. Such assessment may be made, however, without vote of the members as is required for other special assessments, as the payment of such obligation is an obligatory, and not optional, payment of the Association.
