The members shall record the proceedings of each meeting of the executive committee.

  B. A majority of the members of the executive committee shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business; however, whenever the board has delegated to the executive committee full power to act with respect to a matter, affirmative action by a majority of the entire membership of the executive committee shall be required.   The executive committee shall meet monthly except in those months in which the board holds meetings.

  C. The executive committee shall consider such matters as are referred to it by the board. It shall execute such orders and resolutions as shall be assigned to it at any meeting of the board. It also shall take such action as is necessary when an emergency requiring immediate action arises during an interim between board meetings. All acts of the executive committee shall be submitted to the board for ratification or rejection at its next meeting, except in matters where the board has delegated to the executive committee full power to act.

  D. Each board may create and through its bylaws regulate the appointment, meetings, duties and functions of any additional standing or special committees which it deems necessary or expedient.
