Table of Contents and Introduction

Level 201

It is important for all board members and volunteers to understand both the challenges and benefits of working with a board. An executive committee can be difficult to understand — and to keep under control. In Executive Committee, we recognize the potential for an executive committee to cause unrest on the board and provide suggestions on how to avoid possible conflict. We take great pains to assure readers that, despite potential risks, an executive committee is an asset because of its authority to act in emergency situations and its unique relationship with the chief executive.

We also discuss

  • factors to consider in structuring this committee
  • warning signs of when an executive committee may cause turmoil and how to prevent potential pitfalls
  • the importance of specifically outlining executive committee responsibilities in your bylaws
  • guidelines for communication and relationship-building with the rest of the board and staff
  • solutions for times when the committee oversteps its boundaries

Use this resource to determine whether an executive committee is right for your organization!
