Each trustee before entering upon his duties, shall file with the commissioner a bond to the association in such sum as the commissioner shall fix, conditioned for the faithful performance of his duties.

The Superior Court may remove any trustee for cause, upon the application of the commissioner, and may appoint a trustee to serve in the place of any trustee who fails to qualify or whose office as trustee becomes vacant.  No person, other than a member of the association, shall be appointed as a trustee for such association unless it appears to the court that no member, qualified to act, will do so.  In the event that a trustee is removed, dies or fails to qualify after election as such, the acts of the remaining trustees shall be valid and effectual until the vacancy is filled.

The trustees shall act by a majority vote and the signatures of a majority of them to any deed or other document shall suffice.

The trustees shall apply to the Superior Court for approval of any account filed by them and for their compensation and discharge.  They shall have the powers of receivers as provided in sections 14:14-11 and 14:14-12 of the Revised Statutes.  The provisions of section 14:14-11 of the Revised Statutes shall apply to persons refusing to be sworn, to answer questions, or to declare the whole truth.
