AS 06.05.437. Officers.

(a) The officers of a bank shall be chosen by the board of directors. An officer may not be appointed to serve for a period longer than one year. If a president of a bank or other chief officer responsible for the management of the bank is not a director, the officer must be an ex officio member of the board of directors without the power to vote.

(b) A bank shall report within 30 days to the department any changes among executive officers, including in its report a statement of the business and professional affiliations of new executive officers.

(c) If the department determines that an officer or employee of the bank has been negligent, dishonest, reckless, or incompetent in the performance of official duties, the department may order the board to remove the officer or employee from office, after giving the board and the officer or employee an opportunity for a hearing under AS 06.01.030. If the board neglects or refuses to remove the officer or employee from office and if losses due to the negligence, dishonesty, recklessness, or incompetence of the officer or employee accrue to the bank after the neglect or refusal, the order of the department is conclusive evidence of the negligence of the board under this subsection in an action brought against the board, or a member of the board, for recovery of the losses.
