A county children services board appointed under section 5153.03 of the Revised Code shall elect one of its members as chairperson and another as secretary. The chairperson may appoint committees composed of board members and other persons interested in child care. A majority of the members of the board shall constitute a quorum, and the action of a majority of the members present shall constitute the action of the board. The board shall meet at least once a month and called or adjourned meetings may be held at any time, as the board determines. The board members shall serve without compensation, but they shall be entitled to their necessary expenses and shall be considered employees of the county under section 325.20 of the Revised Code. Failure of any member of the board to attend three consecutive regular meetings, unless for reasons beyond the member's control, or other manifest indifference to the purposes or work of the board, shall be cause for the member's removal from such board.
