Chapter 26. Alaska Medical Facility Authority
Sec. 18.26.030. Board of directors of the authority.
(a) The authority shall be managed and controlled by a seven-person board of directors, who serve at the pleasure of the governor, consisting of
(1) the commissioner of revenue, who shall also chair the board;
(2) the commissioner of health and social services;
(3) the commissioner of commerce, community, and economic development;
(4) four public members, appointed by the governor.
(b) The four public members appointed under (a)(4) of this section serve for staggered four-year terms. Each must be a resident of the state and a qualified voter at the time of appointment and shall comply with the requirements of AS 39.50 (public official financial disclosure). Each member shall hold office for the term of the appointment and until a successor has been appointed and qualified. A member is eligible for reappointment. A vacancy on the board of directors occurring other than by expiration of term shall be filled in the same manner as the original appointment but for the unexpired term only. Each member of the board, before entering upon the duties of office, shall take and subscribe to an oath to perform the duties of office faithfully, impartially, and justly to the best of the member's ability. A record of the oath shall be filed in the Office of the Governor.
(c) If any commissioner is unable for any reason to attend a meeting of the authority, the commissioner may, by an instrument filed with the board and incorporated into the minutes of the meeting, designate another person within the commissioner's department to serve as a member at that meeting. For purposes of this chapter, an acting commissioner is a member of the board until a commissioner assumes office.
