The SCB-ES bylaws provide for the establishment of committees as a means to focus section activities and to foster communication with the membership. Committees are, at any time, accountable to the Section Board. Strategies and actions proposed by committees have to be approved by the SCB-ES Board of Governors. The BOG ultimately decides on procedures for implementation.
