  2.  When the board of directors meets by telephonic conference call or video conferencing, the bank or trust company may include in a quorum directors who are not physically present but are allowed to vote, provided the bank and directors meet the applicable requirements of this section as follows:

  (1)  The bank or trust company has a composite rating of 1 or 2 under the CAMELS (Capital, Assets, Management, Earnings, Liquidity, and Sensitivity) rating system of the Federal Financial Institution Examination Counsel (FFIEC); and

  (2)  The bank or trust company's board meeting will not be attended by representatives of the bank or trust company's state or federal bank regulator.

  3.  Any director who is not physically present within the common area for the meeting and wishes to be counted toward a quorum for such meeting shall sign an affidavit under penalty of perjury that such director:

  5.  The sole remedy when the bank, trust company or director fails to follow the procedures for directors who are not physically present and counted toward the board's quorum as provided in this section shall be limited to such action as the division of finance may bring under its enforcement authority as provided in chapter 361.
