Each member of the Board serves on at least one standing committee. After committee meetings the committee may ask the administrative team for more background information or data, or refer the topic to the Board Agenda for full board discussion and action. Committees take no action, but serve as a conduit for bringing agenda items to the full Board in a more efficient and productive manner. Following full Board discussion, a topic may be dropped, referred back to administration for additional work, referred back to committee for additional review or revision, or scheduled for action at a Board meeting.
