Except as provided by subsection (b), appointments to the council shall be for terms of three years. Five of the persons appointed shall be members in good standing and officers of Kansas state chartered credit unions. Subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4315c, and amendments thereto, of those five members, the governor shall appoint one from each congressional district and the remainder from the state at large. The council shall elect annually a chairperson, a vice-chairperson and a secretary for a term of one year or until their successors have been appointed and qualified. All members of the council shall serve until their successors have been appointed and qualified. Kansas state chartered credit unions regulated under the provisions of this act may submit annually to the governor, for consideration in making appointments to the credit union council, a list of persons having the prescribed qualifications for membership on the council. The council may adopt such rules and regulations governing the compilation of such list as may be necessary. In the event of a vacancy on the council, the governor shall appoint a new member to fill the unexpired term. The mid-term appointment of a new council member to serve an unexpired term created by such a vacancy shall not be considered a full term for purposes of the two-term limit. Except as otherwise provided, no person shall serve more than two consecutive full three-year terms as a member of the council. No more than four members of the council shall be from the same political party.

(b) Members shall be appointed for terms of three years and serve until their successors are appointed and qualified.

The majority of the council shall constitute a quorum for doing business. The council may adopt such rules as advisable for conducting business and, until otherwise changed or modified, the council shall abide by Robert's rules of order in conducting business.

(d) The council shall serve as an advisor to the administrator on issues and needs of credit unions.
