Withdrawals from any share account may be made at any time and on any day the credit union is open for business; however, a member is required to maintain a minimum share balance of $5.00.
The amount of shares per member will not be limited; however, each member shall be entitled to only one vote in the affairs of the credit union regardless of the number of shares held.
