Section 10A-2A-7.30 - Voting Trusts.
(a) One or more stockholders may create a voting trust, conferring on a trustee the right to vote or otherwise act for them, by signing an agreement setting out the provisions of the trust (which may include anything consistent with its purpose) and transferring their stock to the trustee. When a voting trust agreement is signed, the trustee shall prepare a list of the names and addresses of all voting trust beneficial owners, together with the number and class of stock each transferred to the trust, and deliver copies of the list and agreement to the corporation at its principal office.
(b) A voting trust becomes effective on the date the first shares of stock subject to the trust are registered in the trustee's name.
(c) Limits, if any, on the duration of a voting trust shall be as set forth in the voting trust. A voting trust that became effective when this chapter provided a 10-year limit on its duration remains governed by the provisions of this section concerning duration then in effect, unless the voting trust is amended to provide otherwise by unanimous agreement of the parties to the voting trust.
