Subcommittees and Working Groups

Beaconsfield Neighbourhood Centre has ongoing Subcommittees, and sometimes short term working groups, to assist with getting the work of the management group done. Subcommittees and working groups usually have between 3 and 6 members. The small number of people can do in-depth work on particular issues and come back with plans or recommendations for the Committee of Management to decide on. The President may be an ex-officio member of each Subcommittee.

They can help to :

  • Reduce overwork in very active members
  • Better use the skills and expertise of many people
  • Share power and responsibility
  • Give opportunties for training and skil development
  • Allow the Committee to co-opt people with new ideas or expertise
  • Share the ‘dirty’ work
  • Make it easier for individuals to participate

Beaconsfield Neighbourhood Centre Subcommittees include:

  • Hall and Building
  • Staff
  • Finance
  • Publicity and Promotion
  • Fundraising
  • Open Day & Special Events
  • Children’s

The Subcommittees have brief guidelines which cover:

  • Membership and other terms of reference which specify the tasks
  • Any powers delegated by the Committee of Management to make decisions or recommendations
  • Requirements for accountability eg minutes, reports
  • Timetable for the life of the subcommittee if for a specific task
  • Any administrative support required
