The advisory board consists of nine North Dakota residents appointed by the governor for three year terms as follows: a. A practicing respiratory therapist familiar with tobacco related diseases; b. Four non-state employees that have demonstrated expertise in tobacco prevention and control; c. A practicing medical doctor familiar with tobacco related diseases; d. A practicing nurse familiar with tobacco related diseases; e. A youth between the ages of 14 and 21; f. A member of the public with a previously demonstrated interest in fostering tobacco prevention and control. The governor shall select the youth and public member independently; the respiratory therapist from a list of three nominations provided by the North Dakota society for respiratory care; the four tobacco control experts from a list of two nominations per member provided by the North Dakota public health association's tobacco control section; the medical doctor from a list of three nominations provided by the North Dakota medical association; and the nurse from a list of three nominations provided by the North Dakota nurses association. In the initial appointments for the advisory committee, the governor shall stagger the terms of the members so that the terms of three members expire each fiscal year and that three members are appointed each year by June 30. Accordingly, the governor's initial appointments must, in some instances, be for terms less than 3 years. The governor shall fill vacancies for the unexpired term as provided in this section. No individual may serve more than two consecutive three-year terms; however terms of less than three years are not considered in determining an individual's eligibility for reappointment. A quorum of the advisory committee is required to conduct business, but the advisory committee may conduct a meeting with less than a quorum present. A quorum is a majority of the members of the committee. Any action taken requires a vote of the majority of the members present at the meeting.
