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.
