General Instructions—Oath of Bank Director
National banking law at 12 USC 73 requires each elected or appointed director to take an oath that he or she will “diligently and honestly administer the affairs of such association, and will not knowingly violate or willingly permit to be violated any of the provisions” of the National Bank Act and that the director is the owner in his or her own right of the capital stock required by 12 USC 72.
The oath must be taken before a Notary Public, properly authorized and commissioned by the state in which the Notary resides, or before any other officer having an official seal and authorized by the state to administer oaths, except that the oath shall not be taken before any such Notary Public or other officer who is an officer of the director’s bank. The Notary Public’s resident state should be the same as the state in which the oath is administered.
Foreign or United States citizens who are abroad may satisfy the notarization requirement by using a foreign notary or the services of a local United States embassy or consulate. The latter option may be quicker and more effective.

Converting Institutions

1. At the first meeting of the board, the directors take the joint oath of bank directors before a Notary Public. Regardless of whether the director is present, the director’s name and address should be included on the joint oath.


2. Each director, who did not take the joint oath, must execute an individual oath before a notary.
3. When all directors have taken the oath, the secretary of the board forwards the executed oath(s) to the Licensing staff in the appropriate district office. The bank should retain a copy.
4. After the initial shareholders’ meeting, any new directors will take the oath of directors following the procedures for existing national banks.
Questions related to the preparation of the oath should be directed to the Licensing staff in the appropriate district office.
