This Article 55 does not affect the ability of an Investment Club to pay compensation to a director in connection with the termination of his employment by the Investment Club.
(2) Where a payment which is unlawful under this Article 55 is made to a director, he shall be liable to repay it to the Investment Club, unless and until the provisions of this Article are subsequently complied with.
