Section 9.1 No Personal Liability. So long as a Board member, Association committee member, Association officer, or authorized agent(s) has acted in good faith, without willful or intentional misconduct, upon the basis of such information as may be possessed by such person, no person shall be personally liable to any Member, or other party including the Association, for any damage, loss or prejudice suffered or claimed on account of any act, omission, error, negligence (except gross negligence), any discretionary decision or failure to make a discretionary decision, by such person in such person's official capacity; provided, however, that this Section shall not apply where the consequences of such act, omission, error or negligence are covered by insurance or bond obtained by the Board pursuant to Article 4 or Article 14 hereof.
Section 9.2 Indemnification. Each Board member or Association committee member, or Association Officer, and their respective heirs and successors, shall be indemnified by the Association against all expenses and liabilities, including attorneys' fees, reasonably incurred by or imposed in connection with any proceeding to which he or she may be party, or in which he or she may become involved, by reason of being or having held such position at the time such expenses or liabilities are incurred, except in such cases wherein such person is adjudged guilty of intentional misconduct, or gross negligence or a knowing violation of law in the performance of his or her duties, and except in such cases where such person has participated in a transaction from which said person will personally receive a benefit in money, property, or services to which said person is not legally entitled; provided, however, that in the event of a settlement, indemnification shall apply only when the Board approves such settlement and reimbursement as being in the best interests of the Association. Nothing contained in this Section 9.2 shall, however, be deemed to obligate the Association to indemnify any Member who is or has been a Board member or officer of the Association with respect to any duties or obligations assumed or liabilities incurred by him or her under and by virtue of the Declaration as a Member or Owner of a Lot.
