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.
