104.470. 1. The board of trustees shall meet within the state of Missouri, at the time set at a previously scheduled meeting or by the request of any four members of the board. Notice of the meeting shall be delivered to all other trustees in person or by depositing notice in a United States post office in a properly stamped and addressed envelope not less than six days prior to the date fixed for the meeting. The board may meet at any time by unanimous mutual consent. There shall be at least one meeting in each quarter.
2. Six trustees shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business, and any official action of the board shall be based on the majority vote of the trustees present. Unless otherwise expressly provided in this section, a meeting need not be called or held to make any decision on a matter before the board. Each member shall be sent by the executive director a copy of the matter to be decided with full information from the files of the system. The concurring decisions of six trustees may decide the issue by signing a document declaring their decision and sending the written instrument to the executive director within seven days after the document and information was received by the trustee. If any trustee is not in agreement with the six trustees, the matter is to be passed on at a regular board meeting or a special meeting called for that purpose.
3. The trustees shall serve the system without compensation but shall receive their necessary expenses incurred in the performance of their duties for the system.
4. Duties performed for the system by any member of the board shall be considered duties in connection with the regular employment of the individual, and he or she shall suffer no loss in regular compensation by reason of the performance of such duties.
5. In the event any trustee other than the state treasurer or the commissioner of administration fails to attend three consecutive meetings of the board, unless excused for cause at the third meeting and each consecutive meeting thereafter by the trustees attending such meetings, the trustee shall be considered to have resigned from the board and the board shall declare such person's office of trustee vacated, and the vacancy shall be filled in the same manner as originally filled except that vacancies occurring of the elected board members may be filled by the board of trustees until the next regularly scheduled election.
