Article VI

Committees and Divisions

Section 1: Appointment and Authority

The president or chairman of the board, by and with the approval of the governing body,

shall appoint all committees and committee president/chairmen. The president or

chairman of the board may appoint such ad hoc committees and their

president/chairmen as deemed necessary to carry out the program of the chamber.

Committee appointments shall be at the will and pleasure of the president or the

chairman of the board and shall serve concurrently with the term of the appointing

president or chairman of the board, unless a different term is approved by the governing

body. It shall be the function of committees to make investigations, conduct studies and

hearings, make recommendations to the governing body, and carry on such activities as

may be delegated to them by the governing body.

Section 2: Limitation of Authority

No action by any member, committee, division, employee, director, or officer shall be

binding upon, or constitute an expression of, the policy of the chamber until it has been

approved or ratified by the governing body. Committees shall be discharged by the

president or chairman of the board when their work is been completed and their reports

accepted, or when, in the opinion of the governing body, it is deemed wise to discontinue

the committees.

Section 3: Testimony

Once committee action has been approved by the governing body, it shall be incumbent

upon the committee president/chairmen or, in their absence, whom they designate as

being familiar enough with the issue, to give testimony to, or make presentations before,

civic and governmental agencies.

Section 4: Division

The governing body may create such divisions, bureaus, departments, councils, or

subsidiary corporations as it deems advisable to handle the work of the chamber.

The governing body shall authorize and define the powers and duties of all divisions,

bureaus, departments, councils, and subsidiary corporations. The governing body shall

annually review and approve all activities and proposed programs of such divisions,

bureaus, departments, councils, or subsidiary corporations having bearing upon or

expressive of the chamber.
