EXHIBIT 1

BOKF, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION
Charter No. 13679

AMENDED AND RESTATED ARTICLES OF ASSOCIATION
(As of January 1, 2011)

FIRST . The title of this Association shall be “BOKF, National Association”. This Association was first organized in 1910 as The Exchange National Bank of Tulsa. In 1933 this Association was reorganized as The National Bank of Tulsa. In 1975 the name of this Association was changed to Bank of Oklahoma, National Association. In 2011, this Association was merged with other national banks owned by BOK Financial Corporation and its name changed to “BOKF, National Association”.

SECOND . The main office of the Association shall be in the City of Tulsa, County of Tulsa, State of Oklahoma. The general business of the Association shall be conducted at its main office and its branches.

THIRD . The Board of Directors of this Association shall consist of not less than five nor more than twenty-five persons, the exact number to be fixed and determined from time to time by resolution of a majority of the full Board of Directors or by resolution of a majority of the holders of outstanding Common Stock at any annual or special meeting thereof. If required by applicable law, each director shall own common stock of the Association with an aggregate par value of not less than $1,000, or common stock of a bank holding company owning the Association with an aggregate par, fair market or equity value of not less than $1,000, as of either (i) the date of purchase, (ii) the date the person became a director or (iii) the date of that person's most recent election to the Board of Directors, whichever is greater.

Any vacancy in the Board of Directors may be filled by action of a majority of the remaining directors between meetings of shareholders. The Board of Directors may not increase the number of directors between meetings of shareholders to a number which: (1) exceeds by more than two the number of directors last elected by shareholders where the number was 15 or less; and (2) exceeds by more than four the number of directors last elected by shareholders where the number was 16 or more, but in no event shall the number of directors exceed 25.

Terms of directors, including directors selected to fill vacancies, shall expire at the next regular meeting of shareholders at which directors are elected, unless the directors resign or are removed from office.

Despite the expiration of a director's term, the director shall continue to serve until his or her successor is elected and qualifies or until there is a decrease in the number of directors and his or her position is eliminated.

Honorary or advisory members of the Board of Directors, without voting power or power of final decision in matters concerning the business of the Association, may be appointed by resolution of a majority of the full Board of Directors, or by resolution of shareholders at any annual or special meeting. Honorary or advisory directors shall not be counted for purposes of determining the number of directors of the Association or the presence of a quorum in connection with any Board action, and shall not be required to own qualifying shares.

FOURTH . There shall be an annual meeting of the shareholders to elect directors and transact whatever other business may be brought before the meeting. It shall be held at the main office or any other convenient place the Board of Directors may designate, on the day of each year specified therefor in the bylaws, or if that day falls on a legal holiday in the state in which the Association is located, on the next following banking day. If no election is held on the day fixed or in the event of a legal holiday, an election may be held on any  subsequent day  within 60 days of the day  fixed, to be designated by the Board of Directors, or, if the directors fail to fix the day, by shareholders representing two-thirds of the shares issued and outstanding. In all cases at least 10 days advance notice of the meeting shall be given to the shareholders by first class mail.


In all elections of directors, the number of votes each common shareholder may cast will be determined by multiplying the number of shares he or she owns by the number of directors to be elected. Those votes may be cumulated and cast for a single candidate or may be distributed among two or more candidates in the manner selected by the shareholder. On all other questions, each common shareholder shall be entitled to one vote for each share of stock held by him or her.

Nominations for election to the Board of Directors may be made by the Board of Directors or by any stockholder of any outstanding class of capital stock of the Association entitled to vote for election of directors. Nominations other than those made by or on behalf of the existing management shall be made in writing and be delivered or mailed to the President of the Association and to the Comptroller of the Currency, Washington, D.C., not less than 14 days nor more than 50 days prior to any meeting of shareholders called for the election of directors; provided, however, that if less than 21 days’ notice of the meeting is given to shareholders, such nominations shall be mailed or delivered to the President of the Association and to the Comptroller of the Currency not later than the close of business on the seventh day following the day on which the notice of meeting was mailed. Such notification shall contain the following information to the extent known to the notifying shareholder:


(1)
The name and address of each proposed nominee,


(2)
The principal occupation of each proposed nominee,


(3)
The total number of shares of capital stock of the Association that will be voted for each proposed nominee,


(4)
The name and residence address of the notifying shareholder, and


(5)
The number of shares of capital stock of the Association owned by the notifying shareholder.

Nominations not made in accordance herewith may, in his/her discretion, be disregarded by the chairperson of the meeting, and in determining the vote tellers may upon directions by the chairperson disregard all votes cast for each such nominee. No bylaw may unreasonably restrict the nomination of directors by shareholders.

A director may resign at any time by delivering written notice to the Board of Directors, its chairperson, or to the Association, which resignation shall be effective when the notice is delivered unless the notice specifies a later effective date.

A director may be removed with or without cause by shareholders at a meeting called to remove him or her, when notice of the meeting stating that the purpose or one of the purposes is to remove him or her is given; provided, however, that a director may not be removed if the number of votes sufficient to elect him or her under cumulative voting is voted against his or her removal.

FIFTH . The authorized amount of capital stock of this Association shall be 750,000 shares of Common Stock of the par value of $100.00 each; but said capital stock may be increased or decreased from time to time, according to the provisions of the laws of the United States.

No holder of shares of the capital stock of any class of the Association shall have any preemptive or preferential right of subscription to any shares of any class of stock of the Association, whether now or hereafter authorized, or to any obligations convertible into stock of the Association, issued, or sold, nor any right of subscription to any thereof other than such, if any, as the Board of Directors, in its discretion, may from time to time determine and at such price as the Board of Directors, in its discretion, may from time to time fix.


Unless otherwise specified in the Articles of Association or required by law (1) all matters requiring shareholder action including amendments to the Articles of Association must be approved by holders of a majority of the outstanding voting stock, and (2) each shareholder shall be entitled to one vote per share.

Unless otherwise specified in the Articles of Association or required by law, all shares of voting stock shall be voted together as a class, on any matters requiring shareholder approval. If a proposed amendment would affect two or more classes or series in the same or a substantially similar way, all the classes or series so affected must vote together as a single voting group on the proposed amendment.

Shares of the same class or series may be issued as a dividend on a pro rata basis and without consideration. Shares of another class or series may be issued as a share dividend in respect of a class or series of stock if approved by a majority  of the votes entitled to be cast by the class or series to be issued unless there are no outstanding shares of the class or series to be issued. Unless otherwise provided by the Board of Directors, the record date for determining shareholders entitled to a share dividend shall be the date the Board of Directors authorizes the share dividend.

Unless otherwise provided in the bylaws, the record date for determining shareholders entitled to notice of and to vote at any meeting is the close of business on the day before the first notice is mailed or otherwise sent to the shareholders, provided that in no event may a record date be more than 70 days before the meeting.

If a shareholder is entitled to fractional shares pursuant to a stock dividend, consolidation or merger, reverse stock split or otherwise, the Association may: (a) issue fractional shares or; (b) in lieu of the issuance  of fractional shares, issue script of warrants entitling the holder to receive a full share upon surrendering enough script or warrants to equal a full share; (c) if there is an established and active market in the association’s stock, make reasonable arrangements to provide the shareholder with an opportunity to realize a fair price through sale of the fraction, or purchase of the additional fraction required for a full share; (d) remit the cash equivalent of the fraction to the shareholder; or (e) sell full shares representing all the fractions at public auction or to the highest bidder after having solicited and received sealed bids from at least three licensed stock brokers; and distribute the proceeds pro rata to shareholders who otherwise would be entitled to the fractional shares. The holder of a fractional share is entitled to exercise the rights of a shareholder, including the right to vote, to receive dividends, and to participate in the assets of the Association upon liquidation, in proportion to the fractional interest. The holder of script or warrant is not entitled to any of these rights unless the script or warrants explicitly provide for such rights. The script or warrants may be subject to such additional conditions as: (1) the script or warrants will become void if not exchanged for full shares before a specified date; and (2) that the shares for which the script or warrants are exchangeable may be sold at the option of the Association and the proceeds paid to scriptholders.

The Association, at any  time and  from time to time, may authorize and  issue debt obligations, whether or not subordinated, without the approval of the shareholders. Obligations classified as debt, whether or not subordinated, which may be issued by the Association without the approval of shareholders, do not carry voting rights on any issue, including an increase or decrease in the aggregate number of the securities, or the exchange or reclassification of all or part of securities into securities of another class or series.

The Board of Directors shall have the power to:

(8) Manage and administer the business and affairs of the Association.

(9) Adopt bylaws, not inconsistent with law or the Articles of Association, for managing the business and regulating the affairs of the Association.

EIGHTH . The corporate existence of this Association shall continue until terminated according to the laws of the United States.

NINTH . The Board of Directors of this Association, or any three or more shareholders owning, in the aggregate, not less than twenty-five percent (25%) of the outstanding Common Stock of this Association, may call a special meeting of shareholders at any time. Unless otherwise provided by the bylaws or the laws of the United States, or waived by shareholders, a notice of the time, place, and purpose of every annual and special meeting of the shareholders shall be given by first-class mail, postage prepaid, mailed at least 10, and no more than 60 days, prior to the date of the meeting to each shareholder of record at his/her address as shown upon the books of this Association.

TENTH . (A) Directors of the Association shall not be personally liable to the Association or its shareholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director; provided, however, that the foregoing clause shall not apply to any liability of a Director (1) for breach of the director's duty of loyalty to the Association or its shareholders, (2) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of the law, (3) for the payment of unlawful dividends, or (4) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.

(B) The Association shall indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of the Association) by reason of the fact that he is or was a director, officer,  employee or agent of the Association, or is  or was serving at the request of the Association as a director, officer, employee or agent of another association, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if he acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Association, and with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his conduct was unlawful. The termination of any action, suit or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, shall not, of itself, create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith and in a manner which he reasonably believed  to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Association, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful.

(C) The Association shall indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the Association to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that he is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the Association, or is or was serving at the request of the Association as a director, officer, employee or agent of another Association, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys' fees) actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit if he acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Association and except that no indemnification shall be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be liable to the Association unless and only to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction shall determine upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses which the court shall deem proper.


(D) To the extent that a director, officer, employee or agent of the Association has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to in paragraphs (B) and (C) of this Article, or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, he shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys' fees) actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection therewith.

(E) Any indemnification under paragraphs (B) and (C) of this Article (unless ordered by a court) shall be made by the Association only as authorized in the specific case upon a determination that indemnification of the director, officer, employee or agent is proper in the circumstances because he has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth therein. Such determination shall be made (1) by the Board of Directors by a majority vote of a quorum (as directed in the bylaws of the Association) consisting of directors who were not parties to such action, suit or proceeding, or (2) if such quorum is not obtainable, or even if obtainable a quorum of disinterested directors so elects, by independent legal counsel in a written opinion, or (3) by the shareholders.

(F) Expenses incurred by an officer or director in defending a civil or criminal action, suit or proceeding may be paid by the Association in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of such director or officer to repay such amount if it shall ultimately be determined that he is not entitled to be indemnified by the Association as authorized in this Article. Such expenses incurred by other employees and agents may be so paid upon such terms and conditions, if any, as the Board of Directors deems appropriate.

(G) The indemnification and advancement of expenses provided by or granted pursuant to this Article shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those seeking indemnification or advancement of expenses may be entitled under any statute, bylaw, agreement, vote of shareholders or disinterested directors or otherwise, both as to action in his official capacity and as to action in another capacity while holding such office.

(H) The indemnification and advancement of expenses provided by or granted pursuant to this Article shall, unless otherwise provided when authorized or ratified, continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors and administrators of such a person.

(I) By action of its Board of Directors, notwithstanding any interest of the directors in the action, the Association may purchase and maintain insurance, in such amounts as the Board of Directors deems appropriate, on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the Association, or of any association a majority of the voting stock of which is owned by the Association, or is or was serving at the request of the Association as a director, officer, employee or agent of another association, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against any liability asserted against him and incurred by him in any such capacity, or arising out of his status as such, whether or not the Association would have the power or would be required to indemnify him against such liability under the provisions of this Article or any other applicable law; provided, however, that such insurance shall exclude coverage for a formal order assessing civil money penalties against a director, officer, employee or agent of the Association.

(J) The term director as used herein shall include persons serving as advisory directors, senior directors or directors emeritus or any other similar advisory capacity to the Board of Directors of the Association.

(K) Notwithstanding any  provision to the contrary contained herein, the Association shall not indemnify directors, officers or employees against expenses, penalties or other payments incurred in an administrative proceeding or action instituted by an appropriate Bank regulatory agency, which proceeding or action results in a final order assessing civil money penalties or requiring affirmative action by an individual or individuals in the form of payments to the Association; provided, however that the Association shall advance expenses to a director, officer or employee incurred in connection with the defense of any such action if:


(1) The indemnitee enters into an agreement satisfactory to the Association pursuant to which the indemnitee shall reimburse any expenses advanced if (a) a final order is entered in the action assessing civil money penalties or requiring payments to the Association, or (b) if the Board of Directors of the Association finds that the indemnitee willfully misrepresented factors relevant to the Board’s determination of conditions described in (2)(a) or (b) below;

(2) Prior to making any advances, the Board of the Association, in good faith, determines in writing that all of the following conditions are met: (a) the indemnitee has a substantial likelihood of prevailing on the merits; (b) in the event that the indemnitee does not prevail, he or she will have the financial capability to reimburse the Association; and (c) payment of expenses by the Association will not adversely affect Bank safety and soundness; and

(3) If at any time the Board of the Association believes, or should reasonably believe, that the conditions described in (2)(a), (2)(b) or (2)(c) are no longer met, the Association shall cease paying any such expenses.

ELEVENTH . These Articles of Association may be amended at any regular or special meeting of the shareholders by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding Common Stock of this Association, unless the vote of the holders of a greater amount of stock is required by law, and in that case by the vote of the holders of such greater amount. The Association's Board of Directors may propose one or more amendments to the Articles of Association for submission to the shareholders.

Provided, however, it shall not be necessary to prepare and produce a list of shareholders if the share ledger reasonably shows in alphabetical order by classes of shares all persons entitled to represent shares at such meeting with the number of shares entitled to be voted by each shareholder.


Section 6. Quorum .

A majority of the outstanding shares of the association entitled to vote, represented in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum at a meeting of shareholders. If less than a majority of the outstanding shares are represented at a meeting, a majority of the shares so represented may adjourn the meeting from time to time without further notice. At such adjourned meeting at which a quorum shall be present or represented, any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the meeting as originally notified. The shareholders present at a duly organized meeting may continue to transact business until adjournment, notwithstanding the withdrawal of enough shareholders to leave less than a quorum.

Section 7. Proxies .

Shareholders may vote at any meeting of the shareholders by proxies duly authorized in writing, but no officer or employee of this association shall act as proxy. Proxies shall be valid only for one meeting, to be specified therein, and any adjournments of such meeting. Proxies shall be dated and filed with the records of the meeting. Proxies with rubber stamped facsimile signatures may be used and unexecuted proxies may be counted upon receipt of a confirming telegram from the shareholder. Proxies meeting the above requirements submitted at any time during a meeting shall be accepted.

Section 8. Voting of Shares .

When a quorum is present or represented at any meeting, the vote of the holders of a majority of the shares entitled to vote, present in person or represented by proxy, shall decide any  question brought before such meeting, unless the question is  one  upon which, by express provisions of the statutes or of the certificate of incorporation or of these bylaws, a different vote is required, in which case such express provision shall govern and control the decision of such question. Voting at any annual, regular or special shareholders' meeting need not be by ballot unless demand therefor is made by a shareholder, proxy or other person present at and entitled to vote at such meeting. In all elections of directors, the number of votes each common shareholder may cast will be determined by multiplying the number of shares he or she owns by the number of directors to be elected. Those votes may be cumulated and cast for a single candidate or may be distributed among two or more candidates in the manner selected by the shareholder. On all other questions, each common shareholder shall be entitled to one vote for each share of stock held by him or her. Every fractional share of stock, if any, shall entitle its owner to the corresponding fractional vote.


Section 9. Voting of Shares by Certain Holders .

Shares standing in the name of another association shall be voted by the President of such association, or by proxy appointed by him, unless some other person, by resolution of such other association's Board of Directors, shall be appointed to vote such shares, in which case such person shall be entitled to vote the shares upon the production of a certified copy of such resolution.

Shares held by an administrator, executor, guardian or conservator may be voted by him, either in person or by proxy, without a transfer of such shares into his name. Shares standing  in the name of a trustee may be voted by him either in person or by proxy, but no trustee shall be entitled to vote shares held by him without a transfer of such shares into his name.

Shares standing  in the name of a receiver may be voted by such receiver, and shares held by or under the control of a receiver may be voted by such receiver without the transfer thereof into his name if authority so to do be contained in an appropriate order of the court by which such receiver was appointed.

A shareholder whose shares are pledged shall be entitled to vote such shares until the shares have been transferred into the name of the pledgee, and thereafter the pledgee shall be entitled to vote the shares so transferred. Provided, however, that if the instrument of transfer discloses the pledge, the transferor shall be entitled to vote such pledged shares unless, in the instrument of transfer, the pledgor shall have expressly empowered the pledgee to represent the shares. If the pledgee is thus empowered, he or his proxy shall be exclusively entitled to represent such shares. Shares of its own stock belonging to the association shall not be voted, directly or indirectly, at any meeting, and shall not be counted in determining the total number of outstanding shares at any given time, but shares of its own stock held by the association in a fiduciary capacity may be voted and shall be counted in determining the total number of outstanding shares and the actual voting power of the shareholders at any given time.


Section 10. Inspectors of Election .

In advance of any meeting of shareholders, the Board of Directors may appoint inspectors of the election to act at such meeting or any adjournment thereof. If the inspectors of the election be not so appointed, the Chairman of any such meeting may, and on the request of any shareholder or his proxy shall, make such appointment at the meeting. The number of such inspectors shall be one or three. If appointed at a meeting on the request of one or more shareholders or proxies, the majority of shares present and entitled to vote shall determine whether one or three inspectors are to be appointed. An inspector need not be a shareholder, but no person who is a candidate for an office of the association shall act as an inspector.

In case any person appointed as inspector fails to appear or fails or refuses to act, the vacancy may be filled by appointment made by the Board of Directors in advance of the convening of the meeting, or at the meeting by the person or officer acting as Chairman.

The inspectors shall first take and  subscribe an oath or affirmation faithfully to execute the duties of inspectors at such meeting with strict impartiality and according to the best of their ability.

The inspectors of the election shall determine the number of shares outstanding and the voting power of each, the shares represented at the meeting, the existence of a quorum, the authenticity, validity and effect of proxies, receive votes or ballots, take charge of the polls, hear and determine all challenges and questions in any way arising in connection with the right to vote, count and tabulate all votes, determine the result, and do such other acts as may be proper to conduct the election or voting with fairness to all shareholders. The inspectors of the election shall perform their duties impartially, in good faith, to the best of their ability, and as expeditiously as is practical. If there be three inspectors, the decision, act or certificate of a majority shall be effective in all respects as the decision, act or certificate of all.

On request of the Chairman of the meeting, or of any shareholder or his proxy, the inspectors shall make a report in writing of any challenge or question or matter determined by them, and execute a certificate of any fact found by them. Any report or certificate made by them shall be prima facie evidence of the facts stated therein; provided, however, that any ruling by such inspectors may, upon being disputed by any shareholder, proxy or other person, present at and entitled to vote at such meeting, be appealed to the floor of the shareholders' meeting.


Section 11. Informal Action by Shareholders .

Any action required to be taken at a meeting of the shareholders, or any other action which may be taken at a meeting of the shareholders, may be taken without a meeting if a consent in writing, setting forth the action so taken, shall be signed by the holders of outstanding shares having not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted. Prompt notice of the taking of any such corporate action without a meeting by less than unanimous written consent shall be given to those shareholders who have not consented in writing.

Section 3. Vacancies .

Any vacancy in the Board of Directors may be filled by action of a majority of the remaining directors between meetings of shareholders.

No such payment shall preclude any Director from serving the association in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor. Members of any committee appointed by the Board of Directors may be allowed like compensation for attending committee meetings.

Section 6. General Powers .

The business  and affairs of the association shall be managed and conducted and all corporate powers shall be exercised by its Board of Directors, which may exercise all such powers of the association and do all such lawful acts and things as are not by statute or by the certificate of incorporation or by these bylaws directed or required to be exercised and done by the shareholders.

Closing of Transfer Books and Fixing of Record Date

For the purpose of determining the shareholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of shareholders or any adjournment thereof, or the shareholders entitled to receive payment of any dividend or distribution, or the allotment of any rights, or in order to make a determination of shareholders for any other proper purpose, the Board of Directors of the association may provide that the stock transfer books shall be closed for a stated period, not to exceed seventy days prior to the date on which the particular action requiring such determination of shareholders is to be taken. In lieu of closing the stock transfer books, the Board of Directors may fix in advance a date as the record date for any such determination of shareholders, such date in any case to be not more than seventy days prior to the date on which the particular action requiring such determination of shareholders is to be taken. If the stock transfer books are not closed and no record date is fixed for the determination of the shareholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of shareholders, or of the shareholders entitled to receive payment of a dividend or distribution or allotment of rights, the date on which notice of the meeting is mailed or the date on which the resolution of the Board of Directors declaring such dividend or distribution or the allotment of rights is adopted, as the case may be, shall be the record date for such determination of shareholders.
