What do they do?

Management Committee

(may also be called Board of Trustees, Board of Directors, Executive Committee etc).

Clarifying Committee/Staff Roles

Where there are few or no paid staff, the Management Committee often has a very hands-on role.  However, in large organisations where the Management Committee has little involvement in the day-to-day running or management of the organisation.  Where there are paid staff, it is essential that the Management Committee and the senior staff member understand their role and boundaries, and demonstrate respect for each other's position and powers.
