The Sub Committees of the Board help advise the Board of Trustees on specific areas of Tate’s operations. They provide expertise and help the Board act effectively.

Committees are usually chaired by board members and include staff and volunteers. The only “requirement” for joining a committee is an authentic interest in supporting CWB’s mission, however each committee is strengthened by people with related expertise. Monthly board meetings are greatly augmented through the committee structure: specific issues are researched and proposals are developed within committees and then brought back to the full board.
