An amendment of the articles of incorporation which increases the obligation of a member to make loans to the corporation, or makes a change in the principal amount, interest rate, maturity date, or in the security or credit position of an outstanding loan of a member to the corporation, or affects a member's right to withdraw from membership as provided in this chapter, or affects a member's voting rights as provided in this chapter, may not be made without the consent of each member affected by the amendment.

(1) endorse on each duplicate original the word “filed,” and the date of the filing;
