General Assembly Special Committees and Task Forces

General Assembly Special Committees and Task Forces

The formation of special committees and commissions is based on decisions by the General Assembly. Some are appointed because additional information is needed that requires work beyond the assembly’s allotted time. In creating these bodies, the assembly establishes:

  • The focus of committee work
  • Important voices as committee members
  • Expected date of completion
  • Scope of actions the committee may take

Committees bring recommendations to General Assembly for review and action. Commissions are empowered to act on behalf of the General Assembly between sessions.
