Can chair vote

In general, I'd say yes. But I'd also say that I'm using the term "Executive Committee" the way RONR does, which is to refer to a "board within a board" in the circumstance where the Board itself is large or the members are geographically diverse. Thus, the bylaws establish an Executive Committee (EC), essentially a sub-board of the Board, to carry on some of the business of the society between meetings of The Board. And I'd say that this EC is likely a small group, perhaps a dozen or fewer members. And per RONR, the rules for such "small boards" are relaxed in several ways, one of which is the chair voting, subject to rule or custom of the EC.

See RONR (10th Ed.) pages 468-471 for some further details.
