Activating Committees

Activating local committees is the key to reaching decisions within the local. The total membership of an organization seldom has the knowledge, experience, facility or time to handle policies and problems which involve in-depth and detail analysis. Moreover, neither the president nor the Executive Board seldom have all of the information necessary to make the right decision alone. Consideration of a policy or problem by a carefully selected, well-oriented and skillfully-led committee can reach a decision that is supported by the membership.
