I. If a vacancy shall occur by death, resignation, or otherwise of a director appointed by the governor, then the governor, with the advice and consent of the council, shall fill the same for the unexpired term. The governor and council may at any time remove a director appointed by the governor for inefficiency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office, but no such director shall be removed without a hearing, after notice in writing of the charges against the director. A director who is appointed to the board as a member of the house of representatives shall serve at the pleasure of the speaker of the house of representatives. A director who is appointed to the board as a member of the senate shall serve at the pleasure of the president of the senate.
II. If a director is appointed to the board as an executive director of a regional planning commission or as an elected or appointed local official and the director ceases to hold such office, the director shall continue as a director for the remainder of the unexpired term and shall be treated for purposes of RSA 162-A:4 as if the director continued to hold such office. If a director is appointed to the board as a member of the house of representatives or as a member of the senate and the director ceases to be a member of the house of representatives or the senate, such director shall also cease to be a director.
