"A committee is best composed of three people, with one who is always sick and another who is always absent."http://www.associationinnovation.com/thedailyinnovator/2005/09/committee_humor.html
"A committee is composed of people who individually can do nothing, who come together to conclude that nothing can be done." http://www.associationinnovation.com/thedailyinnovator/2005/09/committee_humor.html

The definition of committee ranges from the function to the inspirational, with a good share of humor, too. Anyone who works with a committee wonders what is the magic to keep the committee on track. Here is a checklist to assess the way the committee is managed. This assessment might help get them back on track or improve the work of the group.
