A director who fails to timely file the written certification or educational certificate is suspended from service on the board until he or she complies with this sub subparagraph. The board may temporarily fill the vacancy during the period of suspension. The secretary shall cause the association to retain a directorís written certification or educational certificate for inspection by the members for 5 years after a directorís election. Failure to have such written certification or educational certificate on file does not affect the validity of any action.
