  1. Mr Brown, I have a follow-up question about special committee. If another standing Committee sends out cards as part of their duties but none of the cards standing committee 'A' (which solely does cards) sends. Does this mean Standing committee 'A' can not become a special Committee because another standing Committee already sends cards?
  2. Mr. Brown, I have a follow-up question about special committee. If we have another standing committee that sends out cards as a small part of their duties but not any of the cards listed in the standing committee 'A' that solely sends cards. (I hope that makes sense) Does that mean that standing committee 'A' can not be a special committee because another committee sends cards too?
  3. Thank you everyone for your responses. They are all very helpful. I do have some follow-up questions. Doesn't the standing committee also have to report out to the chapter monthly? I think that was another part of my confusion in thinking this should be a special committee. Our bylaws does not say the president can create committees.Just appoint. So for clarification the president can only appoint committees that are listed in the bylaws? We have a big fundraising event every 2 years. We do not have a fundraising committee in our bylaws. The president appoints the committee. Is this correct or does a motion have to be made to create the fundraising committee every 2 years?
  4. Hi, I am looking for guidance on a few questions related to special committees and standing committees. First, our bylaws say the president can "appointment all committees otherwise not provided for." There is a standing committee in our bylaws that sends out various cards for graduation, weddings, showers, etc. From what I've read in RONR, a special committee performs a specific task and essentially goes away after completion. I'm a little confused because this sounds like a special committee to me however other members believe this should remain as standing. Can someone advise on the type of committee this would be? My follow up questions if this is a special committee, would an amendment have to be submitted to remove it from the bylaws? Lastly, would the president then have to appoint this as a special committee and where should duties of a special committee be? Can you please reference pages so I can refer back to? Thank you for your help!
