Volunteer Request: Committee Interest Form

Committees are a mechanism by which a board partitions its work. A committee serves as a prompt and efficient method of handling the board’s business. There are three distinct types of committees as described below. 

Standing Committees

Standing committees are set up on a permanent basis and deal with matters that constantly come before the board.

Sub Committees

Sub committees are established by standing committees, usually have a short term and involve a focused short-term project or task.  Upon completion of the project or task, the committee is dissolved.

Ad Hoc Committees

Ad Hoc committees are established by the Board for specific, immediate or temporary tasks.  Upon completion of the project or task, the committee is dissolved.

Fields marked with an * are required.

Please verify that you have checked the “I'm not a robot” checkbox.
