Authority:  the Education Engagement Group is established as a standing committee of the Inkster Task Force Board.  Oversight for this committee’s actions rests with the Inkster Task Force Board and Engagement group co-chairs, which are Fleda Fleming and Kate Brady-Medley for the current year.  All committee activities should be coordinated with the larger Task Force Board.

 

Governance:  Per Task Force by-laws, the Education Engagement Group is overseen by a chair or co-chairs, selected by Board membership, generally made by consensus process, although a more formal process of voting may be employed as necessary.  Meetings are called by the Engagement group chair.  Any member of the committee may bring a matter before the committee for its consideration.  Chairs are responsible for calling meetings, setting the agenda, directing activities of the committee, making assignments to the committee members and reporting to the Board of Directors.

 

Timing:   The group will furnish written and oral reports at regular Board of Directors meetings, including any actions requested by the committee.  The group will conduct its business primarily through face to face meetings and electronic communication. (HOW OFTEN WILL YOU MEET?)
