This document summarizes proposed changes to the AIEA committees. These changes reflect good practice for membership organizations, provide Board oversight and engagement on the core business of the association, yet still permit the organization the necessary flexibility to respond to new opportunities. This document describes three types of committees: Board Committees, Standing Committees, and Task Forces.
Ask Our Consultants - BOARD COMMITTEES
In general, committees are delegated bodies charged with accomplishing specific work between board meetings and bringing information or recommendations to the full board at a designated time. As a best practice, the full board should engage in generative and strategic thinking about using board committees for their organization. Once a board has determined if there is a real need and purpose for establishing a particular board committee, it can develop a global organizational protocol for committees.
ARE YOUR BOARD COMMITTEES - WORKING WELL?
No board’s committee structure should be set in stone. Every board should pay close attention to the needs of the board and the organization and make sure its work groups are meeting those needs. Frequently reevaluating your board’s committee structure and keeping it flexible allows your board to address structural issues as they occur or even before they start.
Audit Committee Checklist
This might be done with a checklist (sample herein by ASAE), by your accountant when completing a financial audit or information return, or by using the Association Self-Audit Process manual. The following guides both the audit committee and CEO in reviewing operations.
Built for success committees
Committees are essential to a well-functioning association. The committee consists of a homeowner who volunteers their time and effort to consider, investigate and take action.
Committee Chairs: Important Details.
AIEA is grateful for its member leaders who serve as Committee Chairs. As a member-driven organization, committee work is a crucial contribution to the Association and the field of international higher education.
Committee Ground Rules
While the committee is guided by governing documents, it is reasonable for the committee chair to suggest “ground rules.”
Board Committee Membership - WHO SHOULD SERVE ON WHICH COMMITTEE?
It is also important to note that there is no optimal committee size. It strongly depends on the committee’s purpose, the scope of its work, and the size of the full board. A committee should always be small enough to keep all members thoroughly involved. Group dynamics can determine effective working relationships and, consequently, the size of the group.
How committees can help your community
Members of an association often have tasks that require more in-depth study by a small group. That’s where a committee comes in.
