(a) There shall be, with respect to an endowment trust fund, one investment committee consisting of the following:
(1) Not less than two members of the directors, each of whom shall serve ex officio during his or her term of office as a member of the directors, and each of whom shall be elected by the directors.
(2) Not more than five additional persons, each of whom shall serve as a member of such investment committee for such term of office as shall be prescribed in the authorizing resolution, and shall be elected by the directors, either (i) from nominations made by any trade organization under contract to the board with respect to such fund, or (ii) if no such contract exists, from the membership of one or more trade organizations, or (iii) if no such trade organization exists, as the board deems advisable.
(b) The investment committee shall elect, from among its members, such officers as it shall deem necessary or desirable, and the respective duties and terms of office of such officers shall be such as are from time to time prescribed by such investment committee; provided, however, that no person may serve as an officer of the investment committee beyond the expiration of his or her term of office as a member of such investment committee. The investment committee may act by majority of its members. An investment committee may, if expressly so authorized by the board, act hereunder with respect to more than one endowment trust fund created by such board.
(c) The investment committee shall from time to time set, and may from time to time amend, modify, or alter, an investment policy with respect to each endowment trust fund supervised by it; provided, that such investment policy shall not be inconsistent with this division, the authorizing resolution, and the trust agreement under which such fund has been created or established. In addition to any other matters required or authorized by this division to be addressed therein, an investment policy may contain such provisions as the investment committee may deem advisable with respect to the purchase, sale, and disposition of investments by a fund manager with or without the prior approval, whether written or oral of such committee. The investment committee shall monitor the performance of investments of moneys held in and forming a part of such fund, compliance with the investment policy, and if and to the extent authorized by the directors to do so, the management, use, and disposition of any other properties, whether real or personal, tangible or intangible, contributed to the fund.
(d) The directors may authorize the investment committee or any fund manager, or any one or more of them, to provide for the management, use, and disposition of any properties, other than money, contributed to the fund, subject to such conditions or limitations as the directors deem advisable.
