Both the executive committee member and the company they are associated with shall be in good standing in the construction industry and shall continue to operate under good ethical standards and code of conduct throughout the term of their service.
The Executive Committee shall develop and determine the mission, program, business plans, committees, and policies of the Advisory Council.

Members who miss three consecutive meetings, fall and spring, can be terminated from membership on the Executive Committee by act of the Chairperson.
