A building and loan association may issue stock to members, upon certificates or upon written subscription, on such terms consistent with sections 1151.02 to 1151.55 , inclusive, of the Revised Code, as its constitution and bylaws provide, but no initiation or membership fee shall be charged, and if the stock is sold at a premium, all such premiums shall be placed in the reserve fund of the association. All amounts, except fines and premiums, paid in by a member as such on any one account, together with all credits on such account, shall be considered payments on a stock subscription, and the aggregate of such payments and credits, less any charges to such account, shall constitute a stock credit of such member for the purpose of such sections. Each member may vote his stock to the extent and in the manner provided by the constitution of the association, but no member shall accumulate his votes. This section does not prohibit the issuance of permanent stock.
A building and loan association may issue capital notes or debentures at such times, in such amounts, and subject to such terms as the superintendent of building and loan associations in writing approves, but in no event shall such terms require or permit that the holders of such capital notes or debentures be held individually responsible as such holders for any debts, contracts, or engagements of the association.
