member of the national organizations of governors, legislators, state chief justices,
attorneys general and crime victims. All noncommissioner members of the interstate
commission are ex officio, nonvoting members. The interstate commission may provide
in its bylaws for such additional, ex officio, nonvoting members as it considers necessary.

The interstate commission shall establish an executive committee that includes commission
officers, members and others as determined by the bylaws. The executive committee

interstate commission is not in session, with the exception of rulemaking or amendments
to the compact. The executive committee oversees the day-to-day activities managed
by the executive director and interstate commission staff; administers enforcement
and compliance with the provisions of the compact, its bylaws and as directed by the
interstate commission; and performs other duties as directed by the interstate commission
or set forth in the bylaws.
