Board meetings and voting rights

If a board member decides to remove self from the board and appoints a person (or persons) to represent her/her committee, does this representative have equal voting rights as all other board members?

Nothing in RONR gives a member of any body to select their own replacement. If your rules allow this it will be up to you all to work out the details.

Unless your bylaws specify such an option, a member has no right to appoint a replacement for him/herself. If the board member is resigning, look to your bylaws for any vacancy filling provisions. If a person is properly appointed to fill a vacancy, that appointee is a member with full membership rights, including the right to vote.
