IDAHO CREDIT UNION ACT
26-2118. CREDIT COMMITTEE — APPOINTMENT — DUTIES. (1) The board may appoint a credit committee. The credit committee shall have the general supervision of all loans to members. It shall be the duty of the credit committee to review all applications for loans, to ascertain whether the loan would be for a provident or productive purpose, to determine whether the applicant qualifies for the loan under the credit union’s loan and underwriting policies, and to determine whether the security offered, in the credit committee’s judgment, is sufficient, and whether the requested terms of the loan are in accordance with the credit union’s loan and underwriting policies.
(2) The credit committee shall meet as often as necessary and at least once each month to review delinquent loans. The credit committee shall keep a record of all actions taken at each meeting and shall submit a written report to the members at the annual meetings and to the board monthly.
(3) The credit committee, upon approval by the board, may appoint one (1) or more loan officers to act under the supervision of the credit committee, and a loan officer, when appointed, may make loans without the necessity for a meeting or of approval by any members of the credit committee, as provided in the bylaws. No more than one (1) member of the credit committee may serve in the position of loan officer. No individual shall have authority to disburse funds of the credit union for any loan that has been approved by him in his capacity as loan officer, except that the loan officer may disburse loans approved by him that are fully secured by shares or that do not exceed the credit union’s unsecured loan limit set by the board of directors.
(4) No member of the credit committee may serve as a member of the board of directors or supervisory committee while serving as a member of the credit committee.
