1733.26 Loan officers.

(A) The credit committee may be delegated the authority to appoint one or more loan officers, and delegate to them power to approve loans within limits fixed by the regulations, bylaws, or resolutions of the board of directors. If the regulations so provide, the board may appoint one or more loan officers, and delegate to them the power to approve loans within limits fixed by the regulations, bylaws, or resolutions of the board.

The authority of loan officers may also be further restricted by policies established by the credit committee or the board. Such loan officers also may be loan originators registered with the nationwide mortgage licensing system and registry as provided in section 1733.252 of the Revised Code.

(B) Each loan officer appointed pursuant to division (A) of this section shall, within seven days of the filing of each loan application received by the loan officer from a member or by referral from another officer, furnish to the credit committee or to the board, whichever is applicable, a record of such application and the loan officer's disposition or recommendation for disposition of it. No person shall have authority to disburse funds of the credit union for any loan which has been approved by the loan officer in the capacity as a loan officer.

(C) If the regulations provide for a credit committee, all applications for loans not approved by a loan officer may be reviewed by the credit committee, and the approval of the majority of the members of the committee who are present at the meeting when the review is undertaken shall be required to reverse the decision of the loan officer, provided that a majority of the full committee is present.

In the absence of a credit committee, the board shall, upon the written request of a member, review a loan application denied by a loan officer.
