(a) A credit union may be converted into a federal credit union, and a federal credit union may be converted into a credit union, by complying with all the requirements of applicable federal and state law.
(b) A federal credit union shall become a credit union when its agreement to form has been approved by the director, or the director's designee, under this chapter and when it has filed a copy of its agreement to form with the national credit union administration and complied with all other requirements of federal law.
(c) A credit union shall become a federal credit union upon the granting of a federal credit union charter to it and the completion of all other requirements of federal law necessary to be completed to become an operating federal credit union, and upon the filing with the director, or the director's designee, a certified vote of the majority of the credit union members present at a meeting called, in accordance with the credit union's bylaws, for the purpose of considering a conversion to a federal charter.
