Prev Article 79. - BUSINESS ENTITY STANDARD TREATMENT ACTNext


17-7916. Attorneys-in-fact and power of attorney; irrevocable power of attorney. (a) Unless otherwise provided in a covered entity's public organic document or organic rules, any person may sign any document filed with the secretary of state pursuant to this act by an attorney-in-fact, but a power of attorney to sign a certificate relating to the admission of a general partner must describe the admission. Powers of attorney relating to the signing of a document by an attorney-in-fact need not be filed in the office of the secretary of state but must be retained by the covered entity.

(b) For all purposes of the laws of the state of Kansas, unless otherwise provided in a covered entity's public organic document or organic rules, a power of attorney with respect to any document filed with the secretary of state pursuant to the business entity standard treatment act, K.S.A. 2019 Supp. 17-7901 et seq., and amendments thereto, shall be irrevocable if the power of attorney states that it is irrevocable and it is coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable power. Such irrevocable power of attorney, unless otherwise provided therein, or in a covered entity's public organic document or organic rules, shall not be affected by the subsequent death, disability, incapacity, dissolution, termination of existence or bankruptcy of, or any other event concerning, the principal.
