What’s the difference?
In simple terms, one is permanent and one is temporary. One is difficult to disband, the other already has a term limit.
Hence, the main reason to create a task force. Standing Committee (permanent) – think finance committee, government affairs committee, annual meeting committee, etc. Task Force (temporary) – think special event, purchasing a building, etc.
While we all know that keeping members engaged helps retention, I definitely subscribe to the philosophy that less standing committee’s is the way to go.
They are your future after all aren’t they?
