(1) To act on applications for membership.
(2) To determine interest rates on loans.
(3) To fix the amount of the surety bond which shall be required of all officers and employees handling money which amount shall be not less than the minimum schedule established by the department.
(4) To declare dividends or recommend dividends as provided in the bylaws.
(5) To transmit or cause to be transmitted to the members all proposed amendments to the bylaws.
(6) If the bylaws provide for appointed credit or supervisory committees, to appoint individuals to serve on the credit committee or the supervisory committee and to fill vacancies in the board and in the credit committee until successors are duly chosen and qualified.
(7) To determine the maximum individual share holdings and, subject to the limitations contained in this title, the maximum individual loan which can be made with or without security.
(8) To have charge of investments, first mortgage loans and loans to other credit unions and Federal credit unions but not loans to members which are under the supervision of the credit committee as otherwise provided in this title. The board may, however, delegate to the credit committee the authority to approve some or all first mortgage loans and to an investment committee or qualified individual the authority to make all or some investments if the board first establishes guidelines and standards for the approval and making of such loans and investments in accordance with the policies of the board of directors.
(9) To fix the amount of compensation of directors, officers, committee members, loan officers and employees.
(10) To determine whether, to what extent and to what class or classes of borrowers, if any, an interest refund is to be made in any dividend period. Any such interest refund shall be paid in proportion to the interest paid by each borrower within any class during that dividend period.
(11) To appoint alternate credit committee members as needed to serve during incapacity or absence of the credit committee members.
(b) Notice of interest refund to department.--Immediately upon the board deciding to refund any interest pursuant to subsection (a)(10), notice of such decision and a copy of any board resolution and related documents shall forthwith be sent to the department. The department shall, within 30 days after receipt thereof, have the power to disapprove, for any reasonable cause stated in writing, any such interest refund. If the department does not disapprove the interest refund within 30 days, the interest refund shall become effective.
