Aug. 13, 1953, ch. 427, § 8, 67 Stat. 564.

In subsection (a), the words “From August 13, 1953, until the final session of the next following annual conference . . . shall be the persons named in section 431 of this title and such additional persons as shall be named by them. Thereafter” are omitted as obsolete.

In subsection (b), the words “one vote to each such agency and to each such organization” are omitted because section 150703(b) of the revised title already states that each of those agencies and organizations has one vote.

In subsection (c), the words “hold an annual meeting” are substituted for “meet at least once each year” for consistency in the revised title.

In subsection (d), the words “and exercise” are omitted as unnecessary.

In subsection (e), the words “who shall have the qualifications and terms of employment decided” are substituted for “in keeping with qualifications and terms of employment adopted” for clarity and consistency.
