THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
Whether your organization is run solely by volunteers or has paid staff (or a combination of both), the Management Committee is responsible for ensuring that systems and structures are in place to provide effective management and support. A Management or Executive Committee is usually the officers of a nonprofit, an Advisory group in a government based program, or grassroots all volunteer group. Good management strategies contribute to the organization's overall effectiveness and its ability to achieve its objectives.
The Management Committee members are also volunteers for the organization who require support and training in order to carry out their role effectively. The Management Committee is also responsible for ensuring that the organization's policies and practices are compliant with relevant legislation, are kept up to date and that its employment practices are at an acceptable standard.
The DIY Committee Guide takes a good look at managing volunteers who serve on Management or Executive Committees. There are articles on legal duties, paid staff and volunteer relations, and equality and diversity. Additional links lead to topics of interest to those working with leadership volunteers.
