§1-812.  Director proxies

A.  A director may vote by proxy at a meeting of the board of directors or of a committee of the board only if the articles of incorporation so provide.

C.  Except as otherwise provided in the articles of incorporation, a separate appointment of a proxy is required for each meeting, and the proxy's authority under any appointment terminates at the conclusion of the meeting for which the appointment was made.

D.  The proxy shall cast the votes of the absent director consistently with any instructions that the proxy receives from the absent director, but otherwise may cast votes on behalf of the absent director in accordance with the proxy's own discretion.
