    (c) The Board shall be so appointed as to represent the
City of Chicago, that part of Cook County outside the City of
Chicago, and that part of the metropolitan region outside of
Cook County on a one man one vote basis. Within 6 months after
the release of each certified federal decennial census, the
Board shall review its composition and, if a change is
necessary in order to comply with the representation
requirements of this subsection (c), shall recommend the
necessary revision for approval by the General Assembly.
    (d) Regular meetings of the Board shall be held at least
once in each calendar quarter. The time and place of Board
meetings shall be fixed by resolution of the Board. Special
meetings of the Board may be called by the chairman or a
majority of the Board members. A written notice of the time and
place of any special meeting shall be provided to all Board
members at least 3 days prior to the date fixed for the
meeting, except that if the time and place of a special meeting
is fixed at a regular meeting at which all Board members are
present, no such written notice is required. A majority of the
Board members in office constitutes a quorum for the purpose of

chairmen and shall provide the term and duties of those
officers pursuant to its bylaws. Before entering upon duties of
office, the chairman shall execute a bond with corporate
sureties to be approved by the Board and shall file it with the
principal office of the Board. The bond shall be payable to the
Board in whatever penal sum may be directed and shall be
conditioned upon the faithful performance of the duties of
office and the payment of all money received by the chairman
according to law and the orders of the Board. The Board may
appoint, from time to time, an executive committee and standing
and ad hoc committees to assist in carrying out its
responsibilities.
    (g) Open meetings of the Board shall be broadcast to the
public and maintained in real-time on the Board's website using
a high-speed Internet connection. Recordings of each meeting
broadcast shall be posted to the Board's website within a
reasonable time after the meeting and shall be maintained as
public records to the extent practicable, as determined by the
Board. Compliance with the provisions of this amendatory Act of
the 100th General Assembly does not relieve the Board of its
obligations under the Open Meetings Act.
