Ad hoc committees

The board is empowered to delegate limited responsibilities to different committees.

If there is a project or a study that is unique or of a short duration that needs to be done, the board can create an ad hoc committee to perform that task.

Such committees could be formed to search for a new property management company, hire a new superintendent, negotiate a contract for a communications provider or negotiate a union agreement for the corporation's employees.

Unless the resolution creating the committee states otherwise, quorum will consist of a simple majority. The committee needs to appoint a secretary as minutes of the committee meetings need to be taken.

The committee works under the authority of the board and the board can determine who will be appointed to the committee and determine the scope of the committee's duties.

Once the project or task is completed, the committee is disolved.
