The board shall consist of not less than five nor more than 25 members who shall be elected by the stockholders at any regular annual meeting which shall be held on such date of each calendar year as the bank or trust company may specify in its bylaws. If the date specified in the bylaws falls on a legal holiday, the meeting shall be held, and the directors elected, on the next following business day. If for any reason the election of directors is not made on the day fixed, or in the event of a legal holiday, on the next business day, an election may be held on any subsequent day within 60 days of the day fixed, to be designated by the board of directors, or, if the directors fail to fix the day, by the shareholders representing 2/3 of the shares. In all cases, at least 10 days' notice of the date for the annual meeting shall have been given by first-class mail to the shareholders. If the number of directors elected is less than 25, the number of directors may be increased so long as the total number does not exceed 25 and when the number is increased the first additional directors may be elected at a special meeting of the stockholders. The directors shall be elected in the manner provided in the general corporation code. Vacancies in the board of directors may be filled in the manner provided in the general corporation code. A majority of the directors shall be residents of this state. Any director of any bank or trust company who shall become indebted to such bank or trust company on any judgment or whose indebtedness is charged off or forgiven shall forfeit such person's position as director and such vacancy shall be filled as provided by law.
