The Standing and Ad Hoc committees of the MVCC are where the business of the Council is first introduced and deliberated. The purpose of a MVCC committee is to deliberate issues presented to the committee, create and vote on motions in response to these issues, and then provide the resultant actions, motions, or recommendations to the Board of Directors of the MVCC. Any action taken by a committee must be submitted to the Board of Directors for final approval.
All committees shall be formed in accordance with the MVCC By-laws Article VIII. Each committee shall have the involvement of at least one (1) Board member. All Board members are expected to serve on at least one committee. All committees shall operate under Rosenberg's Rules of Order and the Brown Act.
Voting membership on any standing or ad hoc committee is open to any Mar Vista Community Council stakeholder who wishes to attend a meeting of the Committee. Any stakeholder in attendance at an MVCC committee meeting may vote on any issue before the committee.
Any recommendation that comes from a committee must have been approved by a majority of the Stakeholders present at the meeting. In addition, committee chairs must provide minority or opposing views from the committee when presenting a motion for the Board's approval.
