           3. The board shall hold at least two meetings each year and may hold such other meetings as it may deem advisable. The time and place of all such meetings shall be determined by the board.

The board shall elect a president, a secretary and a treasurer from its membership and shall have a common seal, of which all courts of this State shall take judicial notice. Its president, or secretary, may issue subpoenas to compel attendance of witnesses to testify before the board and administer oaths in taking testimony in any matter pertaining to its duties, which subpoenas shall issue under the seal of the board and shall be served in the same manner as subpoenas issued out of the Superior Court of this State, and every person who refuses or neglects to obey the command of such subpoena, or who, after appearing, refuses to be sworn and testify, shall, in either event, be liable to a penalty of fifty dollars ($50.00) to be sued for in the name of the board in any court of competent jurisdiction, which penalty when collected shall be paid to the treasurer of said board.

The board may appoint an agent, subject to the approval of the Attorney General, whose title shall be "inspector of the State Board of Examiners of Ophthalmic Dispensers and Ophthalmic Technicians," who shall hold office during the pleasure of the board and who may be removed by the board subject to the approval of the Attorney General, and shall, during his continuance in office, be authorized to serve and execute any process issued by any court of record under the provisions of this act. Such agent shall not be subject to the provisions of the Civil Service law.
