Any actions or business transacted by the Executive Committee will be reported back to the full Board. At any time, the Executive Committee could offer guidance on a particular issue or decide to defer to the full Board.
  • Finance and Audit Committee – Consists of the Treasurer (who serves as the Committee Chair), the President, three Board members selected by a majority vote of the Board, and general members selected at large.

The final budget is subject to the approval of the full Board.
