CHAPTER 91

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 27 OF THE DELAWARE CODE, RELATING TO RELIGIOUS SOCIETIES AND CORPORATIONS TO ELIMINATE THE LIMITATION ON THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF TRUSTEES.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. Section 101, Title 27 of the Delaware Code, is amended to read as follows:

§ 101. Formation: increasing or decreasing number of trustees

Any religious society or congregation, consisting of 15 or more persons, may become incorporated by the election of not less than 3 trustees, and the taking of a name and certifying the same, under the hands and seals of the trustees, to the Recorder of Deeds. Such society or congregation may from time to time increase the number of trustees, and may decrease the number to not less than 3, by a vote of the society or congregation at a public meeting called for that purpose in the same manner as provided in Section 105 of this Title for the election of trustees, voting and counting the votes as provided therein. If the society or congregation, by a plurality of votes of the members present, determines to increase or diminish the number of trustees, such fact shall be certified to the Recorder in the county in which such society or congregation has property, to be by him recorded in the deed records thereof, which certificate shall set forth the number of trustees heretofore contained in the act of incorporation and the number fixed by the meeting provided for by this Chapter, and shall be signed by a majority of the new board of trustees. The Recorder shall receive the same fees now provided by law for like services.

Approved June 28, 1963.
