Policy Governance Committee

The Committee will typically include Board members who have attended a Policy Governance workshop and will consist of up to four Board members. Committee members are appointed by the President of the Board to serve two-year terms on a rotating basis. The committee is to monitor the Board’s use of the Policy Governance Model, identifying opportunities for the Board to edit the Board Policy Manual, ascertaining that the Manual follows Policy Governance language, and assisting the Board in interpreting the Policy Governance Model. The committee is responsible for conducting new Board member orientation. When the Board sends Board members to a Policy Governance workshop, the Committee will alert the attendees in advance to particular issues requiring clarification and/or attention.
