14. INDEMNIFICATION

(A) Actions in the Best Interest of the ARCC . ARCC has the power to indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative by reason of the fact that he or she is or was a director, officer, employee volunteer, or agent of the ARCC or is or was serving at the request of ARCC as a director, officer, volunteer or agent of another foundation, corporation, business corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, whether for profit or not, against expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, penalties, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him or her in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of ARCC and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful. The termination of any action, suit or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction or on a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, will not of itself create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith and in a manner which he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interest of ARCC and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was unlawful.

(B) Determination of Indemnification. Any indemnification under Section a. of this article, (unless ordered by a court) will be made by ARCC only as authorized in the specific case on a determination that indemnification of the director, officer or agent is proper in the circumstances because he or she has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in Section a. of this article and on an evaluation of the reasonableness of expenses and amounts paid in settlement. This determination will be made (i) by the Board of Officers by a majority vote of a quorum consisting of officers who are not parties to such action, suit or proceeding; (ii) if such quorum is not obtainable, by a majority vote of a committee duly designated by the Officers (in which designation by all Officers may participate) and consisting solely of two or more officers not at the time parties or threatened to be made parties to the action; or (iii) by independent legal counsel, in a written opinion, selected by the Officers or its committee in the manner described in the foregoing clauses (i) or (ii) or, if a quorum under clause (i) cannot be obtained and a committee under clause (ii) cannot be designated, by the Officers (in which action all Officers may participate). Not with standing the failure or refusal of the directors or counsel to make provision for indemnification, the indemnification will be made if a court of competent jurisdiction has made a determination that the officer or agent has a right to indemnification under this agreement in any specific case on the application of the officer or agent.

(C) Advancement of Expenses. Expenses incurred in defending a civil or criminal action, suit or proceeding described in Sections a. of this Article may be paid by the ARCC in advance of the final disposition of the action, suit or proceeding as authorized by the Officers in the specific case on: (i) receipt of a written affirmation from the person seeking advancement of expenses of his or her good faith belief that he or she has met the standard of conduct set forth in Section a. and b. of this Article; (ii) receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the person to repay amounts advanced if it is ultimately determined that he or she did not meet such standard of conduct; and (iii) a determination that the facts then known to those making the determination would not preclude indemnification. This determination will be made in the manner specified in Section b. of this article.


13. CHANGES OF THE BY-LAWS:

(A) Upon final approval, By-Laws may only be changed at the annual meeting or at any special meeting called and noticed for that purpose.
