20 CSR 1105-3.030. Economic Advisability
PURPOSE: This rule sets forth criteria the Credit Union Commission has determined to be important for the likelihood of success in establishing and maintaining a new credit union.
(1) Before approving a charter application for a new credit union the director of the Division of Credit Unions must be satisfied that the credit union will be viable and that it will provide needed services to its members. Economic advisability, which is a determination that a potential charter will have a reasonable opportunity to succeed, is essential in order to qualify for a credit union charter.
(2) The Division of Credit Unions will conduct an investigation of each charter application to ensure that the proposed credit union can be successful. This investigation will include an evaluation of-
(A) The character and fitness of proposed management;
(B) The degree of membership support; and
(C) The adequacy of the proposed credit union's business plan.(AUTHORITY: section 370.063, RSMo Supp. 1998.* This rule originally filed as 4 CSR 105-3.030.
