Section 5-17-13

Powers and duties of supervisory committee.

(a) The supervisory committee shall make or cause to be made a comprehensive annual audit of the books and affairs of the credit union and shall submit a report of that audit to the board of directors and summary of that report to the members at the next annual meeting of the credit union. It shall make or cause to be made such supplementary audits or examinations as it deems necessary or as are required by the Administrator of the Alabama Credit Union Administration or by the board of directors and submit reports of these supplementary audits to the board of directors.

(b) The supervisory committee shall cause the accounts of the members to be verified with the records of the credit union from time to time and not less frequently than every two years.

(c) The administrator may define the scope of any audit and may set out what procedures must be followed for an audit to qualify as the required annual audit. He or she may prescribe procedures to be followed in the verification of records required not less frequently than every two years.

(d) Whenever the supervisory committee shall fail to make a comprehensive annual audit or shall fail to verify the accounts of members not less frequently than every two years, the administrator by written order may direct the supervisory committee to perform these duties within a reasonable period of time. Upon failure of the committee to perform these duties as directed by the administrator, the administrator may employ, engage, or contract with a firm with requisite expertise to perform them, and the cost of such audit shall be borne by the credit union.

(e) The supervisory committee, by a unanimous vote, may suspend any officer, director or member of any committee and call the members together to act on such suspension within 30 days after such suspension. The members at the meeting shall consider such suspension and vote to either remove such officer, director, or member of the committee permanently or to reinstate the officer, director, or member of the committee. By majority vote the supervisory committee may call a special meeting of the members to consider any matter submitted to it by such committee. The committee shall fill vacancies in its own membership until the next annual meeting.
