Section: Corporations, associations or societies; effect of repealer on existence, etc., thereof

Statute: 16:1-18

Any religious corporation, incorporated by general or special act, may change its corporate name by a two-thirds vote of those present and entitled to vote at any regular meeting, or at a special meeting duly called for that purpose in the manner its meetings are usually called, specifying by such vote the new corporate name. Thereafter the corporation shall be known by the new name, and shall, by the new name, have, hold and retain all its property, and enjoy the same rights, privileges and powers and be subject to the same liabilities as if no change had been made. Any change in the number of officers and managers or trustees, and the terms of their office, which may be considered expedient for the interests of the corporation, may be made by a majority vote at any regular meeting, and any new departments of religious work not specified in the act of incorporation may be established and maintained by a similar vote, at any regular meeting. This section shall not apply to the Protestant Episcopal Church.
