§ 311. Method of appointing arbitrator
A. If the parties to an arbitration agreement agree on a method for appointing an arbitrator, that method shall be followed, unless the method fails.

An arbitrator appointed by the Commission has all the powers of an arbitrator designated by the arbitration agreement.
B. An individual who has a known, direct, and material interest in the outcome of the arbitration proceeding, or a known, existing, and substantial relationship with a party to the arbitration proceeding, may not serve as an arbitrator unless agreed to in writing by the parties.
