By Sandi L. Humphrey, CAE
Committees are a vital component of a successful organization. When they work effectively, committees provide valuable insight and advice to the board of directors and staff, and can help an organization efficiently achieve its goals and vision. They can also connect an organization with the attitudes and concerns of its members and serve as an important training ground for future leaders. But when committees do not function well, the results can be detrimental.
Ensuring that your organization has the right committees with the right mandate and leadership requires ongoing attention from board members and staff. By examining the various types of committees, ways to establish effective ones and how to implement change in those that already exist, consultant and author, Sandi L. Humphrey, CAE, provides a necessary resource for creating your own organization’s blueprint for success. Now in its Third Edition, this essential publication provides practical information on how the best committees organize themselves to achieve maximum productivity and impact.
