I AM concerned that a committee set up to review finances could collude - with 4 members (a quorum of the full board) and just override the other 3 members of the full board. We are indeed a public body and all committee meetings as well as full board meetings are public. Rarely does anyone attend our small committee meetings though, and they are a bit less formal. Thank you all, you've saved me lots of time scouring for an answer that doesn't exist. I wondered if it was just a bad practice. Thank you all again.
