(1) “Director” means an individual who is or was a director of a nonprofit corporation or an individual
who, while a director of a nonprofit corporation, is or was serving at the nonprofit
corporation's request as a director, officer, partner, member, manager, trustee, employee,
fiduciary, or agent of another domestic or foreign entity or of an employee benefit
plan. A director is considered to be serving an employee benefit plan at the nonprofit
corporation's request if the director's duties to the nonprofit corporation also impose
duties on, or otherwise involve services by, the director to the plan or to participants
in or beneficiaries of the plan. “Director” includes, unless the context requires otherwise, the estate or personal representative
of a deceased director.
(2) “Expenses” includes counsel fees.

penalty, fine, including an excise tax assessed with respect to an employee benefit
plan, or reasonable expenses.

by reason of a merger or other transaction in which the predecessor's existence ceased
upon consummation of the transaction.

corporation and, when used with respect to a person other than a director as contemplated
in section 7-129-107, the office in a nonprofit corporation held by the officer or the employment, fiduciary,
or agency relationship undertaken by the employee, fiduciary, or agent on behalf of
the nonprofit corporation. “Official capacity” does not include service for any other domestic or foreign corporation,
nonprofit corporation, or other person or employee benefit plan.
(6) “Party” includes a person who was, is, or is threatened to be made a named defendant or
respondent in a proceeding.
