The Executive Committee per the Articles of Agreement is a subset of the Board of Directors. Its member communities are dictated under Governance, Article III. There are currently 42 members on the committee, two thirds of whom must be elected officials. The Executive Committee members are noted in the Board of Directors Roster.
All members can choose an alternate to represent themselves in all actions related to the position, including voting at any meeting in which that member is absent.
The constituency requirements and length of term for the Executive Committee are identical to that of the Board of Directors. The Board and/or the Executive Committee may create any committees they deem appropriate and necessary.
The Executive Committee has the authority to make all policy decisions for the Board of Directors. The Board meets quarterly, and the Executive Committee meets on the other months (that the board does not) to discuss agency programs, establish policies, adopt plans and resolve issues.
The Budget Committee has one elected public official from the governing board of each member county, along with any board officer, if not represented by a member county.
