A Sub-Committee is generally made up of members of the Voluntary Board of Directors and acts on behalf of the Board. Sub-Committees are responsible to the Voluntary Board for their actions. While Sub-Committees are made up of members of the Voluntary Board, they may also contain non-board members with specific expertise in a relevant area.
