Title 38.2. Insurance
Chapter 39. Mutual Assessment Life, Accident and Sickness Insurers

§ 38.2-3907. Directors; terms; annual meetings; voting; executive committee.

A. As provided in its certificate of incorporation and as provided in its bylaws, the management of any mutual assessment life, accident and sickness insurer shall be vested in a board of at least five directors, each of whom shall be a member of the insurer. Each director shall hold office for one year or for a longer term if specified by the bylaws, and thereafter until his successor is elected and has qualified. Vacancies on the board may be filled for the unexpired term by the remaining directors.

B. The annual meeting of the members of the insurer shall be held as provided by the certificate of incorporation or the bylaws. A quorum shall consist of the larger of ten members or the number of members specified by either the certificate of incorporation or bylaws. In all meetings of members, each member of the insurer shall be entitled to one vote, or a number of votes based upon insurance in force, the number of policies held, or the amount of premiums paid as provided in the bylaws of the insurer. Votes by proxy may be received in accordance with the certificate of incorporation or the bylaws. The date of the annual meeting shall be stated in the policy, or notice of the date and location of the annual meeting shall be provided annually.

C. Notwithstanding the provisions of the charter of any insurer to the contrary, upon a resolution adopted by the board of directors of the insurer and approved by a majority of its members present in person or by proxy, the directors of the insurer may be divided into classes, and only a portion may be elected each year. Pursuant to the provisions of § 13.1-869 the directors may appoint an executive committee to exercise the powers and perform the duties set out in that section.
