The commission shall organize by the selection of one of their members as chairperson and one as secretary. The commission, subject to the annual approval of the board of supervisors, shall employ an executive director or administrator who shall have the power to employ other necessary employees to carry out the provision of 35B, including administrative or clerical assistants, but no member of the commission shall be so employed.
