Re: Supervisory Committee Members (Your November 22, 1996, Letter)

Dear Ms. Holmes:

You have written seeking a legal opinion on the permissibility of members of the supervisory committee also serving as loan officers. Specifically, you ask if this is a violation of the Federal Credit Union Act (Act). Although not a violation of the Act, the practice you have described is a violation of sound internal controls and should be discontinued. I have enclosed for your review the provision in NCUA's Accounting Manual which discusses the importance of sound internal controls as well as a chart showing the positions in a federal credit union and the persons who are prohibited from holding them.
