Committee

A committee is a type of small deliberative assembly that is usually intended to remain subordinate to another, larger deliberative assembly—which when organized so that action on committee requires a vote by all its entitled members, is called the "Committee of the Whole". Committees often serve several different functions: ▪ Governance: in organizations considered too large for all the members to participate in decisions affecting the organization as a whole, a committee is given the power to make decisions, spend money, or take actions. Some or all such powers may be limited or effectively unlimited. For example of the later case, the Board of directors can frequently enter into binding contracts and make decisions which once taken or made, cannot be taken back or undone under the law. ▪ Coordination: individuals from different parts of an organization might meet regularly to discuss developments in their areas, review projects that cut across organizational boundaries, talk about future options, etc.
