Board Of Directors -- Commissioner Approval -- Compensation

33-10-204. Board of directors -- commissioner approval -- compensation. (1) The board of directors of the association consists of seven members serving terms as established in the plan of operation. Two of the members must be appointed from the public at large by the commissioner. The other members of the board must be selected by member insurers subject to the approval of the commissioner. Vacancies on the board must be filled for the remaining period of the term in the manner described in the plan of operation. In approving selections or in appointing members to the board, the commissioner shall consider, among other things, whether all member insurers are fairly represented.

(2) 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 may not otherwise be compensated by the association for their services. However, any designated representatives of members of the board who are not full-time employees of the member insurers that designated them may receive reasonable compensation for their services on the board of directors upon annual approval by the members of the association.
