            A. The articles of incorporation or bylaws may prescribe qualifications for directors or for nominees for director.

            B. A requirement that is based on a past, current or prospective action, or expression of an opinion, by a nominee or director that could limit the ability of a nominee or director to discharge his or her duties as a director is not a permissible qualification under this Section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, qualifications may include not being or having been subject to specified criminal, civil or regulatory sanctions or not having been removed as a director by judicial action or for cause.

            C. A director need not be a resident of this state or a shareholder of the corporation unless the articles of incorporation or bylaws so provide.

            D. A qualification for nomination for director adopted before a person's nomination shall apply to such person at the time of nomination. A qualification for nomination for director adopted after a person's nomination shall not apply to such person with respect to such nomination.

            E. A qualification for director adopted before the start of a director's term may apply only at the time an individual becomes a director or may apply during a director's term. A qualification adopted during a director's term shall not apply to that director before the end of that term.
