    (a) One or more shareholders may create a voting trust for the purpose of conferring upon a trustee or trustees the right to vote or otherwise represent their shares for a stated duration, which may be perpetual or for a fixed period or may be determined by the occurrence of a stated condition or conditions, by entering into a written voting trust agreement specifying the terms and conditions of the voting trust, and by transferring the subject shares to such trustee or trustees pursuant to the agreement. If the agreement or any amendment thereto does not contain a stated duration, the trust shall terminate 10 years after the agreement first became effective.

    (c) The rule against perpetuities does not apply to any voting trust created in accordance with this Section.
