17-2228. Merger with other credit union, procedure; certificate requirements; assets and liabilities; cancellation of terminated credit union charter. Any credit union, with the approval of the administrator, may merge with another credit union under the charter of such other credit union, pursuant to any plan agreed upon by the majority of the board of directors of each credit union joining in the merger, and approved by the members of each such credit union organized under the provisions of this act, either by the affirmative vote of a majority of those members present at a meeting of its members duly called for such purpose or by the affirmative vote in writing of a majority of its members who participate in the vote on the merger plan without a meeting. After such agreement by the directors and approval of the members of each credit union organized under the provisions of this act, the president or chairperson of the board and secretary of each credit union organized under the provisions of this act, shall execute in triplicate, a certificate of merger, which shall set forth all of the following:

(a) The time and place of the meeting of the board of directors at which the plan was agreed upon;

(b) the vote in favor of adoption of the plan;

(c) a copy of the resolution or other action by which the plan was agreed upon;

(d) the time and place of the meeting of the members at which the plan agreed upon was approved; and

(e) the vote by which the plan was approved by the members.

Such certificates, in triplicate, a copy of the plan of merger agreed upon, and any necessary approvals or consents for a merging credit union organized under the provisions of any other jurisdiction shall be forwarded to the administrator. Upon receipt of these documents, the administrator shall determine whether the merger meets the statutory requirements for field of membership set forth in K.S.A. 17-2205, and amendments thereto. If the merger is approved, a copy of the certificate, certified by the administrator, shall be returned to the merging credit unions within 30 days. The date of certification of the merger by the administrator shall constitute the date of approval. Upon any such merger so effected, all property, property rights and interest of the merged credit union shall vest in the continuing credit union without deed, endorsement or other instrument of transfer, and all debts, obligations and liabilities of the merged credit union shall be deemed to have been assumed by the continuing credit union under whose charter the merger was effected.

This section shall be construed, whenever possible, to permit a credit union chartered under any other act to merge with one chartered under this act or to permit one chartered under this act to merge with one chartered under any other act. The charter of the terminating credit union shall upon merger be canceled and voided by operation of law.
