In the absence or disability of the president, the law grants to the vice-president the power to exercise the duties of the president. In the event of the absence or in the case of the disability of both the president and vice-president at a Board meeting, the president’s powers and duties may be delegated to a chairman pro tem, duly elected by a quorum present at such meeting. Alternatively, the Board may adopt a policy whereby the ranking member present, in terms of continuous service on the Board as of the date of such meeting, will preside.
