ARTICLE VII


EXECUTIVE BOARD


Section 1.  The affairs of this Association shall be managed by its Executive Board.  The Executive Board shall consist of the elected officers, the past presidents who hold the position of administrator, and five members appointed by the President.  The President shall make these appointments with a view toward selection of one member of the Board from each intermediate appellate court circuit.

 

Section 2.  A majority of the entire Executive Board shall constitute a quorum.  This quorum shall be necessary to transact the business of this Association and to take final action.  Action without a meeting may be taken by the signed consent of a simple majority of Board membership.  Board members may participate in a meeting by means of a conference telephone call, and such participation shall constitute presence in person at such meeting.  Voting by proxy shall not be permitted.

 

Section 3.  Notice of meetings of the Executive Board shall be given to each member not less than five (5) days prior to the meeting.  The notice shall contain the purpose, place, date and time of the meeting.  If deemed an emergency by the President and concurred in by a majority of the Executive Board, the five days notice requirement may be waived.  In the event of a vacancy on the Executive Board, the President shall appoint a member of the Association to fill the unexpired term of that member.

 

Section 4. The President shall be Chair of the Board and presiding officer at all meetings.  The Executive Board shall meet at the call of the President.  The President shall call an Executive Board meeting at least once a year.  To promote well-organized semiannual meetings of the entire Association, the President should, if possible, call an Executive Board Meeting approximately six weeks before each semiannual meeting.
