Terms of office of the initial Review Board such that fewer than a majority of seats become vacant at any one time is encouraged. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board of Supervisors may determine to appoint an initial Review Board on an interim basis, in which case all members shall serve equal terms of not to exceed one year. A member may be reappointed by the Board of Supervisors.
