What is a committee?
A committee is a group of people that are an appointed body for a specific service or function. Board committees exist to help assist the Board of Directors at the SFSS do their job. A committee is a Board Committee only if its existence and charge come from the Board, regardless of whether Board members sit on the committee.
There are two types of committees; permanent, standing committees that exist in perpetuity, and ad-hoc committees, that cease to exist as soon as their task is complete. Each Board committee needs to develop a terms of reference and have those terms of reference approved by the Board.
