There shall be no rebate of any license fee upon transfer from active to inactive membership or inactive licensee. An inactive member may attend the annual and special meetings and participate in any debates or discussions at such meetings, but shall not be entitled to vote in any election or upon any question. An inactive member may provide pro bono legal services for or on behalf of a legal services organization approved by the Bar upon meeting certification and performance standards, conditions and rules established by the Board.
(b) The Board may appoint inactive members or inactive Licensed Paralegal Practitioners to committees. The annual fee for an inactive member shall be payable before the first day of July of each year, in an amount fixed by the Board, with the approval of the Supreme Court to effectuate the purpose of this chapter.
