(a) The credit committee shall have the general supervision of all loans to members. It may approve or disapprove loans, subject to written policies established by the board of directors.

(b) The credit committee shall meet as often as the business of the credit union requires to consider applications for loans and/or review the work of the loan officers. No loan shall be made by the credit committee unless it is approved by a disinterested majority of the committee who are present at the meeting at which the application is considered.

(c) If the bylaws so provide, the board of directors may act as the credit committee.

(d) The credit union's board of directors or credit committee may appoint one or more loan officers and delegate the power to approve or disapprove loans, subject to such limitations or conditions as the credit committee or credit union's board of directors prescribes.

(e) A member whose application was disapproved by a loan officer may appeal such action to the credit committee or credit union's board of directors, as appropriate under the bylaws.
