IMPORTANCE OF CFCAR COMMITTEES
Committees help to organize some of the most important work of CFCAR — considering, shaping, and guiding ideas and options to support membership value, education and programs. A committee is a body of members that works in close contact with the board of directors. Usually, the board sends matters to a committee as a way to explore them more fully than would be possible if the board itself were considering them. This is an important stepping stone to board membership.
