Upon recommendation of its board of directors, any federal credit union may convert into a credit union under the laws of this state by complying with the requirements of the Federal Credit Union Act (12 U.S.C.

The commissioner may conduct a joint audit of the federal credit union with federal auditors.

The commissioner may also certify that the transfer of the assets and liabilities from the federal credit union to a credit union subject to the laws of this state has been effected in compliance with the applicable laws of this state. The costs of the audit mentioned in this section shall constitute a charge against the credit union.

(Added by Stats. 1979, Ch. 112.)

15353.
  

Copies of the minutes of the proceedings of the meeting of the members or the written ballot and the record of written vote of the members in which they voted to convert into a state credit union, verified by the board of directors of the credit union, shall be filed within 10 days after the meeting or written vote with the commissioner, and, in duplicate, with the National Credit Union Administration.

(Amended by Stats. 1980, Ch. 413, Sec. 9.)

15354.
  

The verified copies of the minutes of the meeting or the record of written vote, when filed as required by Section 15353, are presumptive evidence of the holding of, and the action taken at, the meeting or the written vote.

(Amended by Stats. 1980, Ch. 413, Sec. 10.)

15355.
  

After an affirmative vote as provided in Section 15350, the federal credit union shall take or cause to be taken such action in the manner prescribed and authorized by this division as shall make it a credit union of this state. The directors shall file the documents and take such proceedings as are required by this division in the case of the original incorporation of a credit union.

(Amended by Stats. 1979, Ch. 811.)

15356.
  

The directors of a credit union converted from a federal credit union may insert in the articles of incorporation the following statement: “This credit union is incorporated by conversion from a federal credit union.”

(Added by Stats. 1979, Ch. 112.)

15357.
  

Within 10 days after the filing of the articles of incorporation with the Secretary of State, there shall be filed, with the National Credit Union Administration, two copies of the articles of incorporation, certified by the Secretary of State.

(Added by Stats. 1979, Ch. 112.)

15358.
  

Upon the filing of the articles of incorporation with the Secretary of State and the issuance of a certificate by the commissioner authorizing the federal credit union to act as a credit union under the laws of this state, the credit union ceases to be a federal credit union and is a credit union under the laws of this state. All of the property of the credit union immediately, by operation of law and without any further act, is vested in the credit union under its new name and existence as a credit union under the laws of this state.

(Amended by Stats. 1981, Ch. 765, Sec. 5.)

15359.
  

The converted credit union shall have, hold, and enjoy the property mentioned in Section 15358 in its own right as fully and to the same extent as the property was possessed, held, and enjoyed by it as a federal credit union and the converted credit union continues responsible for all of the obligations of the federal credit union to the same extent as though conversion had not taken place. The converted credit union is merely a continuation of the federal credit union under a new name and new jurisdiction and such revision of its corporate structure as is considered necessary for its proper operation under the new jurisdiction.

(Added by Stats. 1979, Ch. 112.)
