to keep appropriate and required books and records in connection
therewith, and to submit same for examination and make reports to the
directors at any time, upon their request. It shall be the duty of the
assistant treasurer, if any, to assist the treasurer in the performance
of his duties. The directors shall furnish to the state committee, upon
request, copies of such rules, orders, contracts, forms, and other
