  • § 4177. Board of Directors

    (a) The Board of Directors of the Association shall consist of not less than seven nor more than 11 member insurers serving terms as established in the plan of operation. Members of the Board shall be selected by member insurers subject to the approval of the Commissioner. A vacancy on the Board shall be filled for the remaining period of the term by a majority vote of the remaining board members, for member insurers subject to the approval of the Commissioner. To select the initial Board of Directors, and initially organize the Association, the Commissioner shall give notice to all member insurers of the time and place of the organizational meeting. In determining voting rights at the organizational meeting, each member insurer shall be entitled to one vote in person or by proxy. If the Board of Directors is not selected within 60 days after notice of the organizational meeting, the Commissioner may appoint the initial insurer members. At least one of the directors shall be a person who is an officer, director, or employee of an insurance company incorporated under the laws of this State; provided, however, this provision shall not apply in the event there is no member insurer incorporated under the laws of this State.

    (b) In approving selections or in appointing members to the Board, the Commissioner shall consider, among other things, whether all member insurers are fairly represented.

    (c) Members of the Board may be reimbursed from the assets of the Association for expenses incurred by them as members of the Board of Directors, but members of the Board shall not otherwise be compensated by the Association for their services. (Added 2023, No. 32, § 9, eff. July 1, 2023.)
