Is there anywhere is Robert's rules that states that a committee can not form a sub-committee without the approval of the Executive Board. The sub-committee would be formed for a limited time to deal with a specific issue.

Committees can form subcommittees and no where does RONR say that they must get approval first.

RONR p. 480 says:

A committee (except a committee of the whole,) can appoint subcommittees, which are responsible to and report to the committee and not to the assembly. Subcommittees must consist of members of the committee, except when otherwise authorized by the society in cases where the committee is appointed to take action that requires the assistance of others.

No, there is no such rule. The only time approval would be required is if the subcommittee were to include outside people not on the full committee. And it's not at all clear what the relationship of the Executive Board is to this committee. Does this Committee report to the Executive Board?
