The Board delegates specific tasks to four standing Committees and can create special purpose Committees as needed. Each Committee can draw upon the resources of the CEO and other members of management as appropriate, and may engage outside advisors as required.
The Board determines the authority and responsibilities of each Committee and approves the charters. Committees regularly schedule in-camera sessions, make recommendations to the Board and report regularly to the Board.
Each Committee has a Chair who leads the Committees in performing their functions. Read the Committee Chair Charter
