Meetings of the Board
Meetings of the Board
(a) Meetings. Regular meetings of the Board shall be held at least quarterly and at such time and place as from time to time determined by resolution of the Board or provided by rule of the Board. The Chair of the Board may, and upon the written request of not less than three members shall, call a special meeting, the purpose or purposes of which shall be specified. Meetings may be held either in person or through the use of any means of communication by which all persons participating may simultaneously hear each other (including through the use of captioning or other similar transcription means) during the meeting. At special meetings, the Board shall consider only those specific matters for which the meeting was called, unless all members consent either at the meeting or in writing before or after the meeting to the consideration of other matters.
(b) Notice of Meetings. Notice of the time and place of special meetings of the Board shall be provided to each member, as well as to the Secretary, not later than the third calendar day preceding the date on which the meeting is to be held or as otherwise required by law, provided that such advance notice may be waived by unanimous consent of all Board members attending such meeting. Notice of a special meeting shall also set forth the purpose or purposes of the meeting. Notice of a special meeting need not be given to any member who submits a signed waiver of notice before or after the meeting, or who attends the meeting without protesting, prior thereto or at the commencement thereof, the lack of notice to such member. No notice of regular meetings of the Board shall be required.
(c) Quorum and Voting Requirements. A quorum of the Board shall consist of two-thirds of the members of the whole Board, including a majority of the public representatives and a majority of the regulated representatives, and any action taken by the affirmative vote of a majority of the whole Board at any meeting at which a quorum is present shall, except as otherwise provided by rule of the Board, constitute the action of the Board.
(d) Action Without a Meeting. Action by the Board may be taken without a meeting by unanimous written consent.
(e) Resolutions. Unless otherwise specified by the Act or by rule of the Board, action by the Board may be by resolution. Resolutions of the Board shall take effect immediately, unless a different effective date shall be specified therein.
