Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

51A-6A-15Meetings of governing board--Examination and audit of books and records.

The governing board shall hold at least four regular meetings each year, at least one of which shall be held during each calendar quarter. Unless otherwise provided in the trust company's organizational documents, the governing board or an authorized committee may conduct, or permit any member to participate in, a regular or special meeting through the use of any means of communication by which all members participating may simultaneously hear each other during the meeting. A member participating in a meeting by this means is considered present in person at the meeting. The governing board or an auditor selected by them shall make a thorough examination of the books, records, funds, and securities held by the trust company at each of the quarterly meetings. The result of the examination shall be recorded in detail. If the governing board selects an auditor, the auditor's findings shall be reported directly to the governing board. In lieu of the required four quarterly examinations, the governing board may accept one annual audit by a certified public accountant or an independent auditor approved by the director.

The provisions of this section do not alter, amend, or change the requirement of a public trust company to hold no less than two quarterly governing board meetings with a majority physically present in South Dakota each calendar year pursuant to § 51A-6A-11.1.
