Committees and Task Forces


Committees are an essential link between NIGP's leadership and its members.  There are two types of committees, Board & Council Committees and Operational Committees. A Board & Council Committee is an extension of one of the three Councils (Finance, Member, Talent) in the fulfillment of its responsibilities.  An Operational Committee supports and advises staff in the development and implementation of programs and services produced by the institute.

The Governing Board, any of the three Councils, or any of the committees may establish a task force in order to accomplish a narrowly-focused and time-bound objective directed by the appointing board, council or committee.

A Task Force responds to a specific Board, Council or Committee directive by assessing the issue or initiative and proposing a solution or a range of options to the appointing body for a final decision.
