Any two or more offices may be held by the same person, except the offices of president and secretary.


The board may require any officer to give security for the faithful performance of his duties.


All officers as between themselves and the corporation shall have such authority and perform such duties in the management of the corporation as may be provided in the by-laws or, to the extent not so provided, by the board.
