45:14B-13 - Meetings; chairman, vice-chairman and secretary; seal; quorum; rules and regulations; issuance of permit or license; expenses; subpoenas
The board shall, at its first meeting, to be called by the Governor as soon as may be following the appointment of its members, and at all annual meetings, to be held in June of each year thereafter, organize by electing from among its members a chairman, vice-chairman and secretary whose election shall be subject to the approval of the Attorney General. Such officers shall serve until the following June 30 and until their successors are appointed and qualified. The board shall adopt a seal which shall be affixed to all licenses issued by the board. The board shall administer and enforce the provisions of this act. The board shall hold at least one regular meeting each year; but additional meetings may be held upon call of the chairman or at the written request of any 2 members of the board. Four members of the board shall constitute a quorum and no action at any meeting shall be taken without at least 3 votes in accord. The board shall from time to time adopt such rules and regulations and such amendments thereof and supplements thereto as it may deem necessary to enable it to perform its duties under and to carry into effect the provisions of this act. The board shall examine and pass on the qualifications of all applicants for permits or licenses under the act, and shall issue a permit or license to each qualified successful applicant therefor, attesting to his professional qualifications to engage in the practice of psychology.
Each member of the board shall be reimbursed for actual expenses reasonably incurred in the performance of his duties as a member of or on behalf of the board.
Subject to the approval of the Attorney General, the board shall be empowered to hire such assistants as it may deem necessary to carry on its activities. All expenditures deemed necessary to carry out the provisions of this act shall be paid by the State Treasurer from the license fees and other sources of income of the board, within the limits of available appropriations according to law, but in no event shall expenditures exceed the revenues of the board during any fiscal year. The board, through its chairman or secretary, may issue subpoenas to compel the attendance of witnesses to testify before the board and produce relevant books, records and papers before the board and may administer oaths in taking testimony, in any matter pertaining to its duties under the act (including, without limitation, any hearing authorized or required to be held by the board under any provisions of this act), which subpoenas shall issue under the seal of the board and shall be served in the same manner as subpoenas issued out of the Superior Court. Every person who refuses or neglects to obey the command of any such subpoena, or who, after hearing, refuses to be sworn and testify, shall, in either event, be liable to a penalty of $50.00 to be sued for in the name of the board in any court of competent jurisdiction, which penalty when collected shall be paid to the secretary of the board.
