Request for Amendment to Article VI, Section 7

85-0822 / August 1985
Request for Amendment to Article VI, Section 7

August 22, 1985

FROM: Department of Legal Services


SUBJ: Request for amendment to Article VI, Section 7 of the Federal Credit Union Bylaws by [redacted]

REF : (a) [redacted] memo, [redacted] dated July 16, 1985; same subj., with enclosure

  1. This responds to reference (a) in which you request our opinion on the legality of a proposed bylaw amendment to increase the minimum age for holding elective/appointive office from 18 to 21.
  2. Neither the FCU Act nor the NCUA Rules and Regulations prohibit minimum age requirements for holding elective/appointive offices. Additionally, we find no other legal impediments to enacting the proposed amendment. It appears, therefore, that the issue involves a policy matter to which we defer to your Office.
  3. Please let us know if you require further input from this office.

Assistant General Counsel
