CFUW Committees

All CFUW Committee Chairs and Members serve for a two year term and are appointed at the beginning of each biennium by the new Board of Directors.

The Administration Handbook outlines the process by which some committees and chairs are named however a number are not defined. It also contains the job descriptions for the various committees. The Administration Handbook is found under Organizational Policies.

Committee chairs are appointed by the Board (not the president as was previously the case in some appointments).
