Five members of the board of governors, one of whom shall be a member appointed under (c) of this section, constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. Action may be taken and motions or resolutions adopted by the board of governors at a meeting at which a quorum is present by vote of a majority of the members present, unless the bylaws of an authority require a larger number. The board of governors may delegate to one or more of its officers, agents, or employees the powers and duties that it considers proper. The board of governors may appoint persons as officers it considers advisable, including an executive director, and may employ professional advisors, counsel, technical experts, agents, and other employees it considers advisable.

(e) A member of the board of governors of an authority may not vote on a resolution of the board relating to any agreement to be entered into by the authority under this chapter if the member is a party to the agreement or has a direct ownership or equity interest, beneficially or of record, exceeding one percent in, or is employed by, a firm, partnership, corporation, or association that is a party to the agreement. A resolution of the board that is approved by a majority of all the members who are not barred from voting under this subsection is a valid action of the authority for all purposes.
