In provisions concerning reports and examinations, provides that one or more credit unions may be examined less frequently than biennially upon the Secretary of Financial and Professional Regulation's written statement.

Provides that a written statement made pursuant to the provisions may be superseded by a subsequent statement. Provides that the Secretary is not required to conduct examinations that the Secretary would have been required to conduct but for a written statement. Provides that the written statement shall not be confidential supervisory information except to the extent it names or permits the identification of specific credit unions. Provides that the Secretary may accept an examination from the National Credit Union Administration or a private insurer instead of an examination conducted by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation or by a public accountant registered by the Department. Provides that upon amendment of a credit union's bylaws (rather than upon amendment of a credit union's bylaws approved by the members), in all elections for directors, every member who is a natural person shall have the right to cast one vote in person, by proxy, or by secure electronic record if approved by the board of directors, for as many persons as there are directors to be elected. Changes a reference from "categories" to "investment grades". Makes other changes. Effective immediately.

12reports shall be compiled and published annually by the
13Department, for the use of the General Assembly, credit
14unions, various educational institutions and other interested
15parties. A credit union which fails to file any report when due

21union organization in which a credit union loans, invests, or

13of any credit union. A special examination shall be made by the
14Department or by a public accountant approved by the

21conducted by a public accountant registered by the Department
22of Financial and Professional Regulation and the examination
23is done in conjunction with the credit union's external
24independent audit of financial statements, the requirements of

4guidelines that (i) define the scope of the examination
5process and (ii) clarify examination items to be resolved. The
6rules, formal guidance, interpretive letters, or opinions
7furnished to credit unions by the Secretary may be relied upon
8by the credit unions.
9    (4) A copy of the completed report of examination and a
10review comment letter, if any, citing exceptions revealed
11during the examination, shall be submitted to the credit union
12by the Department. A detailed report stating the corrective
13actions taken by the board of directors on each exception set
14forth in the review comment letter shall be filed with the
15Department within 40 days after the date of the review comment
16letter, or as otherwise directed by the Department. Any credit
17union through its officers, directors, committee members or
18employees, which willfully provides fraudulent or misleading
19information regarding the corrective actions taken on
20exceptions appearing in a review comment letter may have its
21operations restricted to the collection of principal and
22interest on loans outstanding and the payment of normal
23expenses and salaries until all exceptions are corrected and
24accepted by the Department.
25    (5) Notwithstanding the biennial examination requirement
26of subsection (3), one or more credit unions may be examined

12examinations that the Secretary would have been required to
13conduct but for a written statement made pursuant to this
14subsection. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to
15limit the Secretary's authority under this Act. The written
16statement shall not be confidential supervisory information
17except to the extent it names or permits the identification of
18specific credit unions.
19    (6) The Secretary may accept an examination from the
20National Credit Union Administration or a private insurer
21instead of an examination conducted by the Department or by a
22public accountant registered by the Department pursuant to

8nearly equal in number as possible. The term of office of the
9directors of the first class shall expire at the first annual
10meeting after their election, that of the second class shall
11expire at the second annual meeting after their election, and
12that of the third class, if any, shall expire at the third

15number of directors whose terms expire at the time of the
16meeting shall be elected to hold office until the second
17succeeding annual meeting if there are 2 classes or until the
18third succeeding annual meeting if there are 3 classes. A
19director shall hold office for the term for which he or she is
20elected and until his or her successor is elected and

HB4628- 14 -LRB102 21294 BMS 30405 b

1the member's one vote, for as many persons as there are
2directors to be elected, or to cumulate such shares, and give
3one candidate as many votes as the number of directors
4multiplied by the number of his shares equals, or to
5distribute them on the same principle among as many candidates
6as he may desire and the directors shall not be elected in any
7other manner. Shares held in a joint account owned by more than
8one member may be voted by any one of the members, however, the
9number of cumulative votes cast may not exceed a total equal to
10the number of shares multiplied by the number of directors to
11be elected. A majority of the shares entitled to vote shall be
12represented either in person or by proxy for the election of
13directors. Each director shall wholly take and subscribe to an
14oath that he will diligently and honestly perform his duties
15in administering the affairs of the credit union, that while
16he may delegate to another the performance of those
17administrative duties he is not thereby relieved from his
18responsibility for their performance, that he will not
19knowingly violate or permit to be violated any law applicable
20to the credit union, and that he is the owner of at least one
21share of the credit union.

23by the members, in all elections for directors, every member
24who is a natural person shall have the right to cast one vote,

7date of the meeting in order to vote at meetings of the
8members, sign nominating petitions, or sign petitions
9requesting special meetings, and (ii) that members be at least
1018 years of age by the date of election or appointment in order
11to hold elective or appointive office.
12    (2) The board of directors shall appoint from among the
13members of the credit union, a supervisory committee of not
14less than 3 members at the organization meeting and within 30
15days following each annual meeting of the members for such
16terms as the bylaws provide. Members of the supervisory
17committee may, but need not be, on the board of directors, but
18shall not be officers of the credit union, members of the
19credit committee, or the credit manager if no credit committee
20has been appointed.
21    (3) The board of directors may appoint, from among the
22members of the credit union, a credit committee consisting of

2members of the credit union a membership committee of one or
3more persons. If appointed, the committee shall act upon all
4applications for membership and submit a report of its actions

6review. If no membership committee is appointed, credit union
7management shall act upon all applications for membership and
8submit a report of its actions to the board of directors at the
9next regular meeting for review.

12Uniform Electronic Transactions Act. As used in this Section,
13"secured electronic record" means an electronic record that
