Item 5.02
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers;
Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On March 13, 2018, Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. (the “Registrant”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Orrstown Bank (the “Bank”), entered into an Amendment to Employment Agreement (“Amendment”) with Benjamin W. Wallace, Executive Vice President/Operations and Technology of the Registrant and the Bank (the “Executive”), pursuant to which the term of Executive’s employment will now expire on September 1, 2018 (the “Expiration Date”). Prior to the Amendment, the current term of the original Employment Agreement, dated May 28, 2015, was due to expire on May 28, 2020.

The parties entered into the Amendment in connection with the anticipated resignation of Executive during the third quarter of 2018, in order to provide for Executive’s continued employment through the Expiration Date and ensure an orderly transition of his responsibilities during the interim period. Executive’s resignation is not due to a disagreement with the Registrant on any matter relating to Registrant’s operations, policies or practices.

All other terms and conditions of the original Employment Agreement remain in effect and enforceable, including the restrictive covenant and termination “for cause” provisions. Additionally, there has been no change in the compensation to which Executive is currently entitled under the original Employment Agreement or to the compensation programs in which he currently participates as an executive officer of the Registrant.

The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of such Amendment, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
