STRUCTURE, ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Chair of Committee
Selected by the Board of Directors.
Composition of Committee
Members of the committees do not have to be members of the organization or the Board of Directors. A minimum of one board member will sit on the committee to assist with communications with the appointed board. A committee shall be comprised of a minimum of two people.
The committees shall provide a written report to be circulated to the Board of Directors. Highlights, a summary of the report or the full report is to be made available to the membership by being placed on our website. Committees should submit a quarterly report, ideally prior to any board meetings. The committees are responsible to report directly to the board.
Committees are designed to promote discussion and on-going communication with the membership in a specific area. Committees assist with any specific issues relating to a motion from the AGM. Committees may suggest actions to the Board of Directors. Committee members may represent the IMAA at meetings as deemed pertinent by the chair of the committee. Committee members may not make any decisions that contravene the mandate of the organization itself or the by-laws of the corporation.
Nature of Authority
Committees are asked to report to the Board of Directors and make recommendations. At that time, the board will make a decision as to whether the committee is to act on the recommendation or not.
Committees may source outside experts in a given area to help oversee their tasks.
