These Committees are established by Council to perform a specific function of the society. For example, a special committee may act as a planning committee for the organization of a standing committee. Council designates the chair and vice-chair of each special committee. The chair appoints committee members. Each committee must submit a final report to Council upon completion of their assignment.
Ad Hoc Committees
Ad Hoc Committees are appointed by the president and serve only during their term of office; however, a succeeding president may reinstate the committee during their term in office.
The chair of an ad hoc committee reports directly to the president of the society in matters pertaining to affairs of that committee and serves at the discretion of the president for the life of the committee.
