19. A member of a board of directors ceases to be a member when he or she ceases to be a member of the council of the city or municipality that made the designation.
A member who fails to attend two consecutive meetings shall also cease to be a member. The member’s term of office is then deemed to terminate at the close of the third meeting, unless the absence is excused by the board of directors at that meeting. If the member’s absence is not excused, the secretary of the transit authority shall notify the clerk of the city or the secretary-treasurer of the municipality that made the designation.
