Each committee should have a chair and an assistant chair. Committee members should choose people for these positions from amongst themselves. The chair’s duties are as follows:
The chair’s duties may be shared among two or more cochairs, or specifically delegated to other members.
The assistant chair’s duty is to fulfill the duties of the chair when the chair is unable to do so.
The committee should communicate internally through the Yahoo! group set up for it by the Web Committee. This is to provide an archive of the committee's deliberations for future reference by new committee members.
Where possible committee members should communicate committee business to the Executive Committee through the chair. This is to reduce the Executive Committee’s number of ongoing conversations by an order of magnitude.
When a committee needs to make a major public announcement, the chair should discuss the announcement with the Executive Committee, who will coordinate with the chair, the Web Committee and the Spokespersons to determine the ways in which the announcement will be made.
