Can a executive officer appoint themselves as a ex-officio member of a committee without the authorization of the President?

No one can appoint anyone as an ex-officio member of a committee. An ex-officio member is someone who automatically serves on a committee by virtue of his office, therefore they are not appointed. Such an arrangement would need to be provided for in the organization's rules. (FAQ #2)

Neither the executive officer in question nor the President can appoint the person as a member of the committee at all unless such authority is granted by the Bylaws. (RONR, 10th ed., pg. 440, lines 21-31)
