Committees are one of the ways that a Neighborhood Council manages its many duties.  There are board members in every committee, but committees can also have community members.  Each committee serves a specialized purpose such as reviewing land use matters, conducting community outreach, or maintaining the website.  They set their own agendas and decide when to meet, but they have limited autonomy; they cannot act or present views on behalf of the Neighborhood Council, and whatever conclusions they come to are sent to the full GPNC board as a recommendation. The GPNC board decides, at a board meeting, whether to act on those recommendations.  The board has full power to create or disband committees as it deems necessary.
Every meeting must be announced and its agenda posted (on the bulletin board outside of the Community & Senior Center, on our website, and sent to the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment at at least 72 hours before the meeting.  No items may be considered for a vote that do not appear on that meeting’s agenda.  If you wish to see something on a committee’s agenda, contact that committee in advance of their meeting.
