Board Committees

The Board is organized in both a committee structure (distinct committees and subcommittees representing different areas of operations) and a committee of the whole (all members working as one committee for all areas). The committee of the whole structure began in March 2011. The individual committees make their recommendations to the Board as a whole, where authority to vote on applicable actions ultimately lies. Community members who would like to address any of the Board Committees are encouraged to contact the Chair(s) of that committee.
