(2) does not maintain during service on the board the qualifications required for the trustee's position;
(3) violates a prohibition established by Section 825.002(b) or 825.0032 applicable to the trustee;
(4) cannot because of illness or disability discharge the trustee's duties for a substantial part of the term for which the trustee is appointed; or
(5) is absent from more than half of the regularly scheduled board meetings that the person is eligible to attend during a calendar year without an excuse approved by a majority vote of the board.
(b) The validity of an action of the board is not affected by the fact that it is taken when a ground for removal of a trustee exists.
(c) If the executive director has knowledge that a potential ground for removal exists, the executive director shall notify the presiding officer of the board of trustees of the ground. The presiding officer shall then notify the governor and the attorney general that a potential ground for removal exists. If the potential ground for removal involves the presiding officer, the executive director shall notify the next highest officer of the board, who shall notify the governor and the attorney general that a potential ground for removal exists.
