  2.  The governor shall appoint members to the board by and with the advice and consent of the senate.  The board shall consist of eleven members each of whom are United States citizens and who have been residents of this state for at least one year immediately preceding their appointment.  Of these eleven members, three shall be licensed cosmetologists holding a Class CA license classification, one shall be an accredited cosmetology school owner as defined in section 329.010, one shall be the owner of a school licensed under subsection 1 of section 329.040, one shall be a cosmetologist with a license of any type of cosmetology classification, three shall be licensed barbers, and two shall be voting public members.  All members, except the public members and the accredited cosmetology school owner member, shall be cosmetologists and barbers duly registered as such and licensed under the laws of this state and shall have been actively engaged in the lawful practice of their profession for a period of at least five years immediately preceding their appointment.  All members of the board, including public members and the accredited cosmetology school owner member, shall be chosen from lists submitted by the director of the division of professional registration.

  3.  Upon the appointment of the initial board members, at least two cosmetologist members and two barber members shall be appointed by the governor to serve a term of four years; two cosmetologist members, one barber member and a public member shall be appointed to serve a term of three years, and the remaining members of the initial board shall be appointed for a term of two years.  Thereafter, all members shall be appointed by the governor by and with the advice and consent of the senate to serve four-year terms.  The governor shall appoint members to fill any vacancies, whether it occurs by the expiration of a term or otherwise; provided, however, that any board member shall serve until his or her successor is appointed and duly qualified.  No person shall be eligible for reappointment that has served as a member of the board for a total of twelve years.

  5.  Any member who is a school owner shall not be allowed access to the testing and examination materials nor shall any such member be allowed to attend the administration of the examinations, except when such member is being examined for licensure.
