Imposes that liability on each person in whom the discretion or power of the board is vested,Ê to the extent that the discretion or power of the board of directors is governed by the agreement.
A provision eliminating a board of directors in an agreement authorized by this section is not effective unless the articles of incorporation contain a statement to that effect.
