What is a Task Force?
A Task Force is a special committee that is created by the Board when the need arises to carry out a specified task.
- Task Forces carry out a specified task, at the completion of which–that is, on presentation of its final report to the assembly–it automatically ceases to exist.
- The Board of Directors facilitates and monitors the activities of task forces.
- The outcome or product of the task forces will be reported to the Board of Directors and when appropriate to the membership at the Annual Meeting.
- Unless a subcommittee is specifically empowered to make its recommendations to the Board of Directors, a subcommittee will make its recommendations to the parent Committee first for its approval.
- Elect a chairperson at the first meeting following the Annual Meeting.
- Review the functions of the committee as written in WNA’s Policy and Procedures Manual.
- Adhere to allocations identified in the operating budget.
- Report and be accountable to the membership and the Board.
- Collaborate with the WNA Chief executive, or designee, in carrying out task force activities.
