Committee Members
Committee members serve as volunteer members and will not receive compensation for their service. Committee members may be reimbursed for actual and necessary expenses incurred in the performance of official duties. Committee members are selected by the Executive Director from a Board approved list of qualified applicants. Committee members are selected based on knowledge or experience that will provide a valuable and necessary resource to the committee. Board staff will provide the Board with the licensing history of licensees who are considered for appointment to committees.
 
Term of Membership
Committee membership terms will be for two years. A committee member may be reappointed to serve six consecutive years on any one committee. Committee terms begin on January 1 and end December 31 of the following year. Committee members who are appointed at any other time serve for the remainder of the term in progress in addition to the maximum six years allowed.
 
Removal from Service as Committee Member
Committee members serve at the pleasure of the Board and may be removed from committee service at the discretion of the Board.
 
Attendance at Committee meetings
Committee members who are unable to attend a regularly scheduled meeting must request to be excused by the Executive Director. Unexcused absences and abstentions may be reviewed by the Board annually. Two consecutive unexcused absences may be considered notice of that member's resignation and the Executive Director, with approval of the Board liaison, may provide written notice of such resignation to the committee member.
 
In addition, prior to the last Board meeting of the calendar year, the Executive Director and Committee Chair will review the attendance and participation of each committee member. Upon review, the Executive Director and Committee Chair will provide the Board with a recommendation regarding which committee members will remain on the committee for the following calendar year regardless of how long the committee member has been on the committee.

Requests to any committee member for copies of public information or for a public statement relating to committee or board matters will be referred to the Executive Director.
 
Each committee will review all matters referred to the committee and make recommendations on such matters to the Board based on the appropriate statutes and rules.
