Executive Committee (4.1)


Organization Terminology and Organization Types (Part #8)


[Parts: First | Prev | Next | Last | All] [Links: From-K | From-Kx ]


A conference may elect an executive body of comparatively restricted membership (or it may be appointed by the council) with such names as

  • executive committee
  • administrative board
  • steering committee                     
  • standing committee
  • administrative council               
  • permanent committee

Even though the conference may not constitute an organization in its own right, such bodies may take on permanent organizational form.

  • Executive Committee of Nongovernmental Organizations associated with the United Nations Office of Public Information (B4757)
  • Standing Committee of the International Embryological Conference (A3278)
  • Executive Committee for the Common Market of the European Brushware Federation (B0915)

Again, as the last example indicates, regional, specialized and joint bodies may be created at this level.
