Committees respond to the direction and charge of the Board by deliberating the best way to accomplish a task; they explore options and make recommendations for Board action (through the Board liaison). These recommendations may take the form of requests for projects, programs, or expenditures. Committees do not expend funds on behalf of the organization.
Task Forces are formed by the Board of Directors to carry out a specific charge. Once the charge has been accomplished, the Task Force is disbanded.
Thought Groups are formed by the Board of Directors to address the need to proceed with an identified project or activity. Thought groups meet, via conference calls, and bring a recommendation to the Board for further action on the identified project or activity. Once the recommendation has been accepted by the Board, the thought group is disbanded.
