CNO's Board of Directors establishes committees to carry out the purpose and mission of the organization. The Board also establishes committee membership requirements, voting rights, guidelines, policies and procedures for each Committee, and expected duration of the committee. Committee membership may include people not eligible for membership in CNO (a.k.a. non-residents).
A first Chair of each committee is appointed by the Board of Directors (and then concurrently serves on the Board). Additional co-chairs can be elected by Committee Members, and shall be subject to approval by the Board of Directors. Committees are able to pass Resolutions which are then submitted to the Board of Directors for enactment (along with minutes of the meeting when the resolution was passed).
