AN ACT

To amend chapter 186, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to the Missouri Advisory Boards and Commissions Association.




Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:


            Section A. Chapter 186, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 186.070, to read as follows:

            186.070. 1. The general assembly, giving due consideration to the experiences and continued interest of former and current members of various statewide advisory boards and commissions, as well as experience on gubernatorial-appointed boards of curators and regents of regional state colleges and universities, does hereby establish the "Missouri Advisory Boards and Commissions Association". This section enables current members and former members of Missouri's Advisory Boards and Commissions and board of curators and regents to join together in a formal organization. This association shall meet on at least an annual basis, determine association membership guidelines, develop a set of bylaws, and issue annual reports and other reports as requested by the general assembly and the executive branch.

            2. The purpose of the Missouri Advisory Boards and Commissions Association is to provide a framework which enables former and current members of Missouri's Advisory Boards and Commissions to share observations and insights derived from their participation as advisory board and commission members and members of boards of curators and regents to study and discuss matters of statewide importance, as well as to report recommendations for further action as requested to the Missouri general assembly and the offices of the governor and lieutenant governor of the State of Missouri.

            3. Membership in the Missouri Advisory Boards and Commissions Association is purely voluntary and members shall serve without compensation.
