   I have sometimes seen that word used to mean "efficient", but I'm not
sure it's what you are referring to.

   As I understand the word, something is "effective" if it exists and
is valid by the constitution or whichever rules apply. A delegation
is "no longer effective" when it either expires or is cancelled by an
authority that has the power to do so (including self-resignation).
