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.
