A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to the Veterans' Advisory Board.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
Section 1. Subdivision d of Section 14 of the New York city charter is hereby amended to read as follows:
d.  Veterans advisory board. There shall be a Veterans' advisory board consisting of nine members, all of whom shall be veterans, five of whom shall be appointed by the mayor and four of whom shall be appointed by the speaker of the council of the city of New York. Of these nine appointees, there shall be one representative from each of the five boroughs of the city of New York. The mayor and the speaker shall each consider service in conflicts involving members of the United States armed forces when making such appointments. All members shall serve for a term of three  (3) years and may be removed by the appointing official for cause. Members of the advisory board shall elect by majority vote one such member to serve as chairperson and one such member to serve as vice-chairperson, each to serve in that capacity for one-year terms. In the event of a vacancy on the advisory board during the term of office of a member by reason of removal, death, resignation, or otherwise, a successor shall be chosen in the same manner as the original appointment. A member appointed to fill a vacancy shall serve for the balance of the unexpired term. The advisory board shall (i) advise the director on all matters concerning veterans; (ii) meet at least quarterly; (iii) keep a record of its deliberations; (iv) determine its own rules of procedure; and (v) submit an annual report of its activities to the mayor and the council on or before December 31st of each year.
§2.  This local law shall take effect immediately.
