committees of the board
As prescribed by the Foundation's by-laws, the board chair annually appoints members to its four standing committees — Audit, Board Development, Executive and Investment. Each committee has two or more directors as members and nondirectors may serve on committees, as long as a majority of members are directors.
The Executive Committee directs the work of ECF's three mission-based board committees: Community Investment & Engagement, Philanthropic Engagement, and Governance & Sustainability. The audit, governance and investment committees operate within Governance & Sustainability. Executive committee members are listed below, and the list of all Committees of the Foundation board as of November 9, 2016 (to be updated soon reflecting the newly appointed board as of May 2017).
