Standing committees are the best opportunity for stakeholders, public, and partner groups to make their views known to Trustees. Standing  Committee structure operates on less formal   Rules of Order than does the Board, ie. no need for a seconder for a motion, and a Trustee  can speak more than once to a motion; members of the public, presenters and Trustees can ask questions of each other and engage in dialogue.The question can’t be called in a standing committee, meaning debate can extend for some time. The most extensive debate on motions takes place at the standing committees.
