These tasks may include the following:

  • Special Event Committee: This temporary committee will coordinate the board’s assignments for a particular event or project, such as a talent show, fundraising dinner, etc.
  • Planning Committee: This temporary committee will led a strategic planning venture that is led by the board and may consist of board members.
