Committees are one of the ways that a Neighborhood Council manages its many duties. There are board members in every committee, but committees can also have community members. Each committee serves a specialized purpose such as reviewing land use matters, conducting community outreach, or maintaining the website. They set their own agendas and decide when to meet, but they have limited autonomy; they cannot act or present views on behalf of the Neighborhood Council, and whatever conclusions they come to are sent to the full NWWNC board as a recommendation. The NWWNC board decides, at a board meeting, whether to act on those recommendations. The board has full power to create or disband committees as it deems necessary.
