  1. A.  Voting Members.  The Portland Parks Board shall consist of a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 15 voting members appointed by the Mayor in consultation with the Commissioner and confirmed by the Council.  Members shall serve without compensation for terms of 3 years.  No member shall be appointed to more than two full consecutive terms, not to exceed 6 years of total consecutive service; provided that a member appointed initially to a term of less than 3 years may thereafter be re-appointed to two consecutive 3-year terms and completion of an unexpired term shall not apply to the 6 year cumulative limitation.  A member otherwise may be re-appointed after at least 3 years following completion of the member’s two consecutive terms.  Members are expected to bring a system-wide perspective to the Board and to reflect the demographic and geographic diversity of the City.
  2. B.  Ex Officio Members.  The Board may, in its discretion, appoint up to four ex officio members as, in the judgment of the Board, will assist it in carrying out its functions.  Such ex officio members shall be appointed in a manner to be determined by the Board.  Ex officio members shall not have the right to vote.  Ex officio members shall not be subject to the term limitations of Subsection A. of this Section, but the Board may, by rule or regulation, provide for terms and other conditions of service of ex officio members as it may deem necessary or desirable.
