§ 38-30-173. Survival of remedies and title to corporate property after dissolution - nonprofit corporations
(1) This section shall apply to nonprofit corporations that were dissolved before July 1, 1998, and either formed under articles 20 to 29 of title 7, C.R.S., or elected or could have elected to accept such articles as set forth in articles 20 to 29 of title 7, C.R.S.; except that this section shall not apply to any corporation that was dissolved by operation of law before July 1, 1998, as a consequence of the suspension of such corporation and was eligible for reinstatement or restoration, renewal, and revival on June 30, 1998.
(2) The dissolution of a corporation shall not eliminate or impair any remedy available to or against the corporation or its directors, officers, or members for any right or claim existing on dissolution or any liability incurred prior to such dissolution if an action or other proceeding is commenced within two years after the date of the dissolution; except that this subsection (2) shall not apply to any action affecting the title to real estate. Any action or proceeding by or against the corporation may be prosecuted or defended by the corporation in its corporate name. The members, directors, and officers of the corporation shall have the power to take such corporate and other action as shall be necessary or appropriate to effect any remedy available to the corporation, or defend any action or proceeding against the corporation.
(3) (a) After dissolution of the corporation, title to any property of the corporation not previously distributed or disposed of by the corporation shall remain in the corporation. The majority of the surviving members of the last acting board of directors as named in the files of the secretary of state shall have the power and ability to:
(I) Sue and be sued in the corporate name, and, for purposes of suit against such corporation, each director is an agent for service of process; and
(II) Act on behalf of and in the name of such corporation to convey and dispose of any corporate property not distributed or disposed of in the dissolution.
(b) Final disposition of such property shall be made by the majority of the surviving directors in the manner provided by law at the time of the dissolution of the corporation. On the date of the death of the last survivor of the directors, the public trustee of the county in which the property owned by such corporation is situated shall have the power and authority to act on behalf of and in the name of such corporation to convey and dispose of the property.
