MANAGER. A person, appointed or elected to manage the affairs of another, but the term is more usually applied to those officers of a corporation who are authorized to manage its affairs. 1 Bouv. Inst. n. 190.
     2. In banking corporations these officers are commonly called directors, and the power to conduct the affairs of the company, is vested in a board of directors.

Being agents, when their authority is limited, they have no power to bind their principal beyond such authority. 17 Mass. R. 29; 1 Greenl. R. 81.
     3. The persons appointed on the part of the house of representatives to prosecute impeachments before the senate, are called managers.
