The governor shall appoint a board of examiners in optometry for the state of Kansas, consisting of five members. Four members shall be selected after consideration of a list of four or more names for each appointment, submitted by the Kansas optometric association, or its successor. One member shall be a representative of the general public.

All members shall serve for a term of three years, but in no case shall any member be appointed for more than three successive three-year terms. In the case of a vacancy in the membership of the board for any reason, the governor shall appoint a successor of like qualifications to fill the unexpired term, and in making such appointment the governor shall give consideration to the list of persons last submitted. Each member of the board shall hold office until a successor is duly appointed and qualified.
