Section 18.01 Indemnification

A. Unless otherwise prohibited by law, AHP will indemnify any former or current member, Director, Officer or any person or agent who may have served at its request against any and all expenses and liabilities actually and necessarily incurred by him/her, or imposed on him/her, in connection with any claim, action, suit, or proceeding (whether actual or threatened) to which s/he may be or is made a party by reason of being or having been a member, Officer, Director or agent.

B. However, there shall be no indemnification in relation to matters as to which s/he shall be adjudged in such claim, action, suit, or proceeding to be guilty of a criminal offense or liable to AHP for damages arising out of his/her own negligence or misconduct in the performance of a duty to AHP.

C. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing and to the fullest extent permitted by the laws of the District of Columbia, AHP may purchase and maintain insurance against all or a portion of any liabilities and expenses, if any, resulting from the indemnification

of any of the foregoing persons pursuant to this Article XVIII. This indemnification provided by this Article shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which such member, Officer, or agent may be entitled under any statute, or these Bylaws, and shall not restrict AHP to make such indemnification permitted by law.
