Chapter 100.1 - The Code
SECTION 303. SPECIAL COMMITTEES OF THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS.
Special committees may be created by the Board of Governors or the chair of the board to perform specific functions not requiring the continuous existence of a committee. The size, function, and procedures of special committees shall be determined either by majority vote of the board or by the chair of the board. The chair and members of a special committee shall be appointed by the chair of the board from the voting membership of the board unless the Board of Governors otherwise provides. Special committees shall cease to exist when their functions have been discharged; however, every special committee shall cease to exist one year after the date of its creation, unless continued by affirmative action of the board or the chair of the board. Notwithstanding the above, the size, function, procedures, membership, and selection of the chair of a presidential search committee shall be determined by majority vote of the Board of Governors.
