Hi Mark:

Your description of an Executive Committee is a bit different from how Robert's defines or describes an Executive Committee. In Robert's, an Executive Committee is a body that is usually smaller than its board and made up of a few essential officers and perhaps one or two other Directors. Normally, an Executive Committee is thought of as being a "Board within a Board."

In theory, any member of the "committee," could invite guests to attend the "committee" meeting; however, the "body" itself will somehow determine whether they will allow non-members (those other than officers and committee chairman) the opportunity to attend. It's not up to the committee's chairman (presider) to make that determination.

Of course, if this is a public governmental body, other rules may apply.
