Item 5.03.     Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

Effective on November 19, 2012, the Board of Directors (the “Board“) of Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. (the “Company”) amended Article III, Section 3 of its Bylaws to add Sections 3-12 to 3-16, which provide for certain director eligibility requirements (collectively, the “Amendments”).  Each member of the Board of Directors the Company elected after effectiveness of the Amendments must maintain a permanent primary residence within 50 miles of the Company's administrative office in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.  In addition, all directors must now hold at least 3,500 shares of the Company's common stock.  The Amendments also provide that no director of the Company may serve as a management official of another depository institution or depository holding company until the end of his or her term as a Company director.  In addition, the Amendments make any person ineligible to serve as a director of the Company that: (a) is under indictment or has been convicted of a crime involving a breach of trust with a penalty of imprisonment for more than one year; (b) has been issued within the past 10 years a non-appealable cease and desist order by a federal or state bank regulatory agency related to conduct involving dishonesty or breach of trust; (c) has been found guilty in a final decision, either by any federal or state regulatory agency of: (i) committing a willful violation of any law governing banking, securities, commodities or insurance, or any final cease and desist order issued by a banking, securities, commodities or insurance regulatory agency, or (ii) breaching a fiduciary duty involving personal profit; or (d) has been nominated by someone who is ineligible to serve as a director of the Company under requirements (a)-(c) listed above.  In addition, the Amendments add a provision limiting the age of members of the Board to 75 years, provided that any director who reaches such age during his or her term of office may continue to serve on the Board until the expiration of such term.  Previously, the Company's Bylaws did not address such eligibility requirements.   A copy of the Company's Amended and Restated Bylaws is attached as Exhibit 3.1 to this Report.
