Subcommittees

Subcommittees

Proposals for Board action are first taken before an appropriate subcommittee for examination and the subcommittee makes a recommendation to the Board. These subcommittees consist of six to nine Board members, appointed by the Board Chair each January. Unless specifically authorized by the Board, subcommittees serve only in an advisory capacity and do not have the authority to act on behalf of the Board.

Subcommittee meetings are open to the public, but are not governed by public meetings statutes. Subcommittees may close portions of a meeting to discuss land rights negotiations, lawsuits or legal opinions, personnel matters, or strategic recommendations, but all subcommittee actions must be taken in open session. Minutes of subcommittee meetings are kept on file in the District office and are public record.

A list of currently-scheduled subcommittee and other meetings is provided in the attachments.
