What is a committee?
A committee is a group of people that are an appointed body for a specific service or function. Council committees exist to help assist the SFSS Council perform its mandate. A committee is a Council Committee only if its existence and charge come from Council, regardless of whether Council 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 Council committee needs to develop a terms of reference document and have those terms of reference approved by Council.
