Committees

Background

General Information

  • The board empowers committees. There are five standing committees, as defined in Article VII of the bylaws, and ad-hoc committees created as needed.
  • Committees report to the board. They may advise the board or the staff.
  • Unless otherwise noted, committee members include between one and three members of the Board, between one and three staff members, and at least three volunteers (who are not also Board members).
  • Committees perform four main functions:
    • Conduct preparatory work leading up to board decisions – such as developing policy options and planning recommendations for the consideration of the board.
    • Carry out tasks on behalf of the board in certain areas such as fundraising or community relations.
    • Work with the staff to implement certain operations and activities.
    • Serve as a training ground for future board members.
  • Some committees meet regularly; others meet as needed. See the calendar below for the meetings’ schedule.
  • Unless otherwise noted, all meetings are open to the public. PLEASE NOTE: Meetings are currently held online via Zoom videoconferencing. Contact the committee for information on how to join.
