Terms of office for the appointed members shall begin on July 15 of an even-numbered year, except that the terms of office for members appointed pursuant to this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly shall begin upon being confirmed by the Senate. The Governor shall appoint 3 members as trustees with the advice and consent of the Senate in each even-numbered year who shall hold office for a term of 4 years, except that, of the members appointed pursuant to this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly, 3 members shall be appointed for a term ending July 14, 2012 and 3 members shall be appointed for a term ending July 14, 2014.

    Notwithstanding any provision of this Section to the contrary, the term of office of each member of the Board appointed by the Governor who is sitting on the Board on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly is terminated on that effective date. A trustee sitting on the Board on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly may not hold over in office for more than 60 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly.
