(d) A resolution, after notice, adopted by a majority vote of members present at an annual meeting or special meeting called for that purpose.

(2)Allowance expenses. Regardless of the existence of an additional right under sub. (1), the credit union may not indemnify a director or officer, or permit a director or officer to retain any allowance of expenses unless it is determined by or on behalf of the credit union that the director or officer did not breach or fail to perform a duty he or she owes to the credit union which constitutes conduct under s. 186.083 (2) (a) 1., 2., 3. or 4.

(a) As a witness in a proceeding to which he or she is not a party.

(b) As a plaintiff or petitioner in a proceeding because he or she is or was an employee, agent, director or officer of the credit union.
