I think that bylaws are pretty coherent with the statute; what
might need an adjustment is the following wording from the resolution
appointing new members:

to fill the Community-selected seats on the Board for the coming term.

Section 1 is clearly appropriate for the elected board members.
Section 2 is only appropriate for the appointed board members.
Even the bylaws do not use the term "appointment" when referring
to the board member selected according to the article IV,
section 3, subsections (C) and (D). The appointment comes
into play when there is a vacancy ("appoint the candidate receiving the
next most votes").
