(A) There is hereby created a barber board consisting of three members to be appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate as follows: two barbers, one of whom is an employer barber and one of whom is employed as a barber, both of whom have been licensed in this state for at least five years immediately preceding their appointment; and one person who represents the general public and who has no connection to the practice of barbering except as a consumer of barbering services. Each member of the board shall have received a high school diploma or a certificate of high school equivalence issued by the state board of education. No more than two members of the board shall be of the same political party. No member of the board shall be financially interested in, or have any financial connection with, any barber school or wholesale cosmetic, barber supply, or equipment business, nor shall any member teach barbering for monetary consideration. Terms of office are for three years, commencing on the twenty-seventh day of September and ending on the twenty-sixth day of September. Each member shall serve on the board from the date of his appointment until the end of the term for which he was appointed except that if a successor member has not been appointed by the end of the term, the member shall continue until the appointment or until a period of sixty days has elapsed, whichever occurs first. In the case of vacancies occurring on the board, the governor shall, in the same manner prescribed for regular appointment to the board, fill the position by appointing a member to serve for the remainder of the term.
(B) A majority of the members of the board constitutes a quorum to transact and vote on the business of the board. Each member shall receive an amount fixed pursuant to division (J) of section 124.15 of the Revised Code for each day actually employed in the discharge of his official duties. In addition, each member shall receive his actual and his necessary expenses incurred in the performance of his official duties.
