Committees

Section 1. Executive Committees of Directors The Board of Directors, by resolution adopted at a duly notice meeting of the Board of Directors in office, may designate an Executive Committee, which shall consist of two or more Directors, and to the extent provided in said resolution, shall have and exercise the authority of the Board of Directors in the management of the Association, subject to the full Board’s review and control.

Section 2. Non-executive Committees Non-executive committees not having exercised the authority of the Board of Directors in the management of the Association may be designated by a resolution adopted by the Directors present at a meeting at which a quorum is present. Except as otherwise provided in such resolution, members of each such committee shall be appointed by the President of the Association, and one of those persons appointed shall be appointed as chairperson for each such committee. Any member of any committee may be removed by the person or persons authorized to appoint such member whenever in their judgment the best interest of the Association shall be served by such removal. Chairpersons of non-executive committees will be required to report, at any time, to any requesting officer or Board member, their committee’s activities in progress.

Section 3. Term of Office Each member of a committee shall continue as such until his or her successor is appointed, unless the committee shall be sooner terminated, or unless such member be removed from such committee, or unless such member shall cease to qualify as a member thereof.

Section 4. Vacancies Vacancies in the membership of any committee may be filled by appointments made in the same manner as provided in the case of the original appointment.

Section 5. Quorum Unless otherwise provided in the resolution of the Board of Directors designating a committee, a majority of the whole committee shall constitute a quorum and the act of the majority present shall be the act of the committee.

Section 6. Rules Each Committee may adopt rules for its own government, so long as such rules are not inconsistent with these bylaws or with rules adopted by the board of Directors.
