Committees

Standing Committees: A group of members, appointed by the Board, to whom a matter is referred, or is committed for attention, investigation, analysis, or resolution. A standing or permanent committee is intended to continually consider all matters pertaining to a certain subject. Meets at regular intervals throughout the year.

General Committees: A group of members, appointed by the Board, to whom a matter is referred, or is committed for attention, investigation, analysis, or resolution. Other committees meet regularly but do not exist due to a constitutional mandate; therefore, they can be dissolved should the purpose no longer meet a need.

Special Interest Forum

A forum of like-minded members who meet periodically as needed to share information, ideas and views and to undertake projects, if needed.
