2. Board of directors.  With respect to a subsidiary bank established pursuant to a reorganization under chapter 105 from and after the time that subsidiary bank includes stockholders other than the mutual holding company, the articles of incorporation of the subsidiary bank must be amended to provide for proportionate representation of the minority stockholders on the board of directors of the subsidiary bank based on the percentage of common stock owned by the minority stockholders in the aggregate relative to the total amount of common stock then issued and outstanding, except that the minority stockholder representatives on the board of directors of the subsidiary bank may not be fewer than 2.

Representatives of the mutual holding company that serve on the board of directors of the subsidiary bank must be selected in accordance with chapter 105.
