Monitor the Committee

Do you have a committee that is not functioning well?  Here is a checklist to try and get to the root of the problem.  There is a “comments” column for you to jot some way to improve the productivity of the committee.

No

Comments

1. Do people on the committee know what is expected of them?

 

 

 

2. Is a meeting summary sent to remind members of their commitments to work plans for activities?
