(a) The board of directors of each bank shall hold a meeting at least once each month for at least 10 months in each calendar year.

(b) The board of directors shall elect a secretary who shall keep a correct record of the minutes of each board meeting. The minutes shall state the date of each meeting, the names of the directors present, and the votes taken. The record of the meeting of the board of directors shall be subscribed to by the presiding officer and the secretary. The minutes shall be read and approved at the next succeeding meeting, and the minutes of that meeting shall show that fact. It is the duty of the bank examiner to examine the minutes of the board at the time of the bank's examination and to include in the report of examination any failure of the bank to comply with this section.

(c) The board of directors shall designate at least one officer of the bank to prepare and submit to the board at each board meeting a report of the loans, overdrafts, and investments made by the bank in the preceding month or since the last report. The board of directors shall examine and pass upon the report and make it a part of the record of the meeting by recording the report in full in the minutes.

(d) The board of directors shall appoint annually an examining committee of no less than three directors of which no more than one may be an active officer of the bank. The committee shall examine or cause to be examined the condition of the bank. A copy of the report shall be submitted to the department within 60 days after completion of the examination.

(e) Unless prohibited by the articles or bylaws of the state bank, the board of directors or a committee of the board may validly conduct a meeting by communicating simultaneously with each other by means of conference telephones or similar communications equipment.

(f) The department may require a meeting of the board of directors of a state bank to be held in the manner and at the time and place the department directs when, in the judgment of the department, a violation of this title has occurred or is about to occur. A report of an examination required or allowed by this title, the conclusions drawn from the examination by the department, recommendations made by the department, and other matters concerning the operation and condition of the bank may be presented to the board of directors by the department. If the department presents a report of examination or other information is presented to the board, each member of the board of directors shall furnish to the department a statement, on forms to be supplied by the department, that the member has read and is familiar with the recommendations of the department.
