Art. II Pol. 7 | FCHR Governance Policy
GovPol-FCHR-ArtIIPol7 Download


Any committees created by the Commission will be assigned so as to reinforce the Commission's Ends Policies and so as never to interfere with the Commission-Executive Director Linkage.

1. Committees are to help the Commission do its job; committees are not to advise, help, or instruct Commission staff. Committees ordinarily will assist the Commission by preparing policy alternatives and implications for Commission deliberation. In keeping with the Commission’s broader focus, neither Commissioners nor Commission committees will have direct dealings with staff operations.
2. Committees may not speak or act for the Commission except when formally given such authority for specific and time-limited purposes. Expectations and authority will be carefully stated in order to prevent conflict with the authority delegated to the Executive Director.
3. Commission committees cannot exercise authority over staff. Because the Executive Director works for the Commission, he or she will not be required to obtain approval of a committee before undertaking any operational, administrative, or executive action.
4. Committees are to avoid over-identification with organizational parts rather than the whole. Therefore, a committee that has helped the Commission create policy on some topic will not be used to monitor organizational performance on the same subject.
5. Committees will be used sparingly.
6. This policy applies to any group, whether or not it is termed a "committee" or whether or not it includes Commissioners, which is formed by Commission action. It does not apply to committees formed under the authority of the Executive Director.
