Board members provide foresight, oversight, and insight.

Types of Committees

Short-term, or ad hoc, committees are created to deal with a specific issue and are disbanded after the task is completed. Topics might include elections, programs and events, nominations or fundraising. Standing committees discuss such issues as finance, personnel, public relations or program evaluation. Advisory committees are standing committees formed to provide direction in a specific area. For complex topics, the committee might form smaller groups -- called sub-committees, task forces or working groups -- to concentrate on one area and report back to the executive committee or board. (2)

Leadership

Committees have a designated leader or chairman who manages meetings and follows established protocol to make sure objectives are met. The chair also represents the committee and reports results to the board or individuals to whom they are accountable. Standing committees often appoint a co-chair to step in when the chair is unavailable, a secretary to handle administrative duties such as agendas, minutes and logistics and sometimes a treasurer to manage finances. Because of the short-term nature of ad hoc committees, they may not assign other roles aside from the chair. (2)
