All Ex Officio members have the rights and privileges of membership, including the right to vote. [Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (11th ed.), pp. 483-84; p. 497, ll. 20-29.]

• “In the executive board of a society, if the ex-officio member of the board is under the authority of the society (that is, if he is a member, an employee, or an elected or appointed officer of the society), there is no distinction between him and the other board members. If the ex-officio member is not under the authority of the society, he has all the privileges of board membership, including the right to make motions and to vote, but none of the obligations…The latter class of ex-officio board member, who has no obligation to participate, should not be counted in determining the number required for a quorum or whether a quorum is present at a meeting. Whenever an ex-officio board member is also ex officio an officer to the board, he of course has the obligation to serve as a regular working member.”

Passage from GFC Bylaws: “There shall be a minimum of 18 and a maximum of 21 elected, voting members of the Council.”
