RONR states that nonmembers may be appointed to a committee, "even to the position of committee chairman" (pp., 492-493), but I cannot find any discussion regarding the rights of those members in committee. I understand that nonmembers do not have the right to speak or vote in assembly meetings, but it would seem difficult for a nonmember committee chair to break a vote in committee if he or she does not have the right to vote in committee, even if not in assembly. So, my question is this: if an assembly nonmember is appointed to a committee, to any or no particular position, does that assembly nonmember have the same rights, as a member of that committee, as assembly members who are also members on that committee?
