It is suggested that regional committees consider setting up sub-committees to facilitate their work and ensure members feel fully involved. Examples of areas of regional business where a smaller group works well are:
Each sub-committee should be given a remit/tasks to complete and a budget if appropriate. They should know their boundaries including what decisions they can make and when they must return to the BOM/COM for permission to proceed.
Operating in this way means that quarterly meetings are more productive as the sub-committees are tasked with bringing recommendations to the full group, keeping the decision focused.
