A committee is a group formed to help a council with its duties. It is usually given jurisdiction over a particular area of work, may last for a long period of time, and may be referenced in a council’s bylaws. Committees may be modified or dissolved as needs evolve and change. A task force is a temporary group established to accomplish a particular task.They should report to their enabling councils through clear and regular communication. Committee and task force members do not have to be a member of the enabling council.
Departments, programs, and other entities may also form groups or committees. Depending on their purpose and operations, these committees may exist separately from BCG or may seek alignment with a council.
