“How do committees work?”

The board can establish committees and give them particular tasks.

There are different kinds of committees: some only have directors, some only have members, and some are a mixture of directors and members. Ultimately, co-op boards retain authority. Committees can be very helpful, but they don’t have power on their own, independent of the board of directors. In general, they can gather information and make recommendations. The final decisions are still for the board.
