NONVOTING Ex Officio Board Members

The term ex-officio is a Latin term that loosely translates to “by virtue of holding another office.” An ex-officio member is a member of a board, committee, council or other body that receives a position on that body solely because of holding another office. 

Ex-officio members may also be former executive directors, government representatives or others with notable expertise.
