COMMITTEES

Committee chairs and members are appointed by the Chair and serve at the pleasure of the chair.

Upon consultation with the executive officers of the council the chair typically selects the directors, committee chairs and members of the committees based on a combination of factors including: seeking a balanced representation from geographical areas, expertise and demonstration of commitment to work hard at the tasks of the committee.

New Committees are created following each election and/or adjusted as deemed necessary by the Board Chair in consultation with the Committee Chairs throughout the elected term.

Within each Committee Group there are:

1. Standing Committees – meet on a regular basis, generally 1-2 times/month
2. Ad Hoc Committees – made active only when there is a need within the community to study a particular issue of interest for a limited time period.

Please note: All Board Members are required to actively participate in at least one committee. Board Members are encouraged to participate in multiple efforts enabling the Neighborhood Council to operate at its highest potential. Committees may include non-council stakeholders.
