An incorporated church to which this article is applicable, may, at an annual corporate
meeting, change the number of its trustees to three, six, nine, twelve, fifteen, eighteen,
twenty-one or twenty-four, and classify them so that the terms of one-third expire
each year. No such change shall affect the terms of the trustees then in office, and if the
change reduces the number of trustees it shall not take effect until the number of
trustees whose terms of office continue for one or more years after an annual election,
is less than the number determined upon. Whenever the number of trustees so holding over is less than the number so determined
on, trustees shall be elected in addition to those so holding over sufficient to make
the number of trustees for the ensuing year equal to the number so determined on. The trustees so elected up to and including one-third of the number so determined
on, shall be elected for three years, the remainder up to and including one-third
of the number so determined on for two years and the remainder for one year.
