The BCCLS President, in consultation with the Executive Director and the Committee Chair, will appoint at least three members to the standing committees. Committee members will be staff or trustees of member libraries. The President may establish ad hoc committees for specific purposes. No committees will have other than advisory powers unless, by suitable Executive Board action, it is granted specific power to act.
