Those individuals who are members of the Board of Directors of the Bank shall be eligible to become a participant in this Plan. A member of the Board of Directors who chooses to participate in the Plan (hereinafter referred to as the " Participant" ) shall complete and file a written statement with the Bank notifying the Bank of his or her election to participate in the Plan (the " Election Form" ).
