Committees & Programs

Functions of Committees in Nonprofit Organizations

Within successful nonprofit organizations, the board of directors accomplishes work and attains goals through committees. The goal of the committee is to focus efforts and break the work at hand into meaningful and controllable segments. Committees are work units of the organization, and make full use of the time, expertise and commitment of its members to address issues and achieve goals. While some committees may last for years, others will only exist for a matter of weeks or months, depending on the requirements of the task.
