Oversight of the centrally managed work
Types of committee
Oversight of the centrally managed work of Britain Yearly Meeting is in large part entrusted to committees.
There are different types of committee: standing committees, which are established for an unlimited duration, and ad hoc committees, which may be set up for a specific purpose as occasion requires and are usually expected to complete their task by a set date. A smaller committee with a very specific task may be called a group. All committees and groups have terms of reference, which are available from the Recording Clerk.
