§ 1105. Advisory council
(a) There may be an advisory council appointed by the board to be known as the Nursing Home Administrator Advisory Council, hereinafter called the advisory council, consisting of ten members. Six members shall be nursing home administrators. At least one of the nursing home administrator members shall be an administrator representing a proprietary nursing home, at least one shall be an administrator representing a nonprofit voluntary nursing home, at least one shall be an administrator representing a government facility which is a nursing home. The remaining members of the advisory council shall be an educator from an institution of higher learning engaged in teaching health institutional administration, a clergyman, a physician and a registered nurse, both with a demonstrated interest in long-term care. The nursing home administrators who are initially appointed as members need not be licensed but shall be required only to possess the qualifications and be eligible for licensure.
The term of each member of such advisory council shall be three years, or until a successor is appointed and has qualified, and vacancies shall be filled for the unexpired term only. Of the members first appointed, three shall be appointed for a term of one year, three shall be appointed for a term of two years, and three shall be appointed for a term of three years.
The board may remove any member of the advisory council for misconduct, incapacity, incompetence or neglect of duty after such member of the council shall have been given a written statement of the charges and an opportunity to be heard thereon.
(b) The advisory council shall elect annually from its members, a chairman and vice-chairman and for the purpose of transacting its business shall meet at least once every three months. Special meetings may be held as frequently as its business may require at the call of the chairman upon the request of a majority of the members of the council, or as requested by the chairman of the board. A quorum of the council shall consist of not less than five members.
Members of the advisory council shall receive no compensation, but each shall be entitled to receive his reasonable expenses actually and necessarily incurred in the performance of his duties.
The secretary of the board shall serve as secretary to the council, but shall not be a member of the council and shall receive no extra compensation therefor.
(c) The board may request the advisory council, and upon such request, the advisory council shall, or upon its own initiative the advisory council may:
(1) Consider any matters relating to the practice of nursing home administration including any matter pertaining to the administration and enforcement of this act and advise the board thereon.
(2) Delegate one member of the council to attend as an observer any formal disciplinary hearings and subsequent proceedings involving an alleged violation of this act. The council shall not delegate a member who is engaged as a nursing home administrator in the same county in which the respondent nursing home administrator licensee is engaged.
(d) The advisory council shall have no executive, administrative, or appointive powers or duties.
