The committee shall approve or deny written applications for loans from members pursuant to and consistent with the general loan policy and rules and regulations established by the board for member loans.
The credit committee shall elect a chairman and a secretary and any other officers which it deems necessary. It shall be the duty of the secretary of the credit committee to keep permanent minutes of all of its meetings.

c. If the bylaws provide for a credit committee, the credit committee may appoint one or more loan officers, to whom it may delegate the power to approve applications for loans from members pursuant to and consistent with the general loan policy and rules and regulations established by the board for member loans. Each loan officer shall submit to the credit committee a record of each application approved or denied by him, at the next meeting of the credit union or within 30 days of the receipt of the loan application, whichever is earlier. All applications denied by a loan officer shall be reviewed by the credit committee. No person shall have the authority to disburse funds for any loan which has been approved by him as loan officer. Not more than one member of the credit committee may be appointed as loan officer.
d. If there is no credit committee, a member shall have the right, upon written request to the board of directors, to review by the board of a loan application which has been denied by a loan officer.
