(a) A majority of the members of the board of trustees shall constitute a quorum, but a smaller number may adjourn from day to day until a quorum is present. A quorum may be assembled in person or through electronic communications that permit complete auditory access to the proceedings of the board. During each meeting of the board, no more than two members may participate through electronic communications.
(b) Standing committees of the board, excluding the executive committee, may meet by means of telephone conference, video conference, or other electronic means by which all persons participating in the meeting, and members of the public, may hear each other simultaneously, if the committee has no authority other than to make recommendations to the full board. Meetings conducted pursuant to this subsection shall be properly noticed and shall comply with the Alabama Open Meetings Act.
