What is a subcommittee?

A committee is a sub-set of the board, often a mix of board members and executives, with designated authority from the board to meet, discuss and recommend/ make decisions on behalf of the board.

How do I run subcommittee meetings in BoardPro?

BoardPro offers dedicated committee accounts, which enable the committees to have their own workflow for people, meetings, actions, and documents. People on that committee who are not on the Board can see only the committee information.

Does my subcommittee have the same features as the board?

Yes, your committee has all of the features that your board enjoys, so that you can manage the meetings and between-meeting activities of the committees just as easily!

You will notice a few label changes, such as 'Committee Members' and 'Meeting packs'.

Can someone on multiple subcommittees have a different access level for each?

Yes! You can allocate unique access levels to each of your committees. For example, someone may be a Board Member but also the Chair of a committee.
BoardPro enables you to have the access level you need for every board or committee.

Can I access all of my boards and subcommittees with one login?

Yes, that's right. When you have been added with the same email address for each board and committee, you only need to log in once to access all of them.

Where can I find a complete list of all committees for my organisation?

You can find them under the Organisation tab in BoardPro on the blue navigation bar

Does that mean everyone will be able to access committees from this page even if they are not invited?

No. If a person were to click on a committee and they do not have access to that particular one they will see a warning that they do not have permission to view the committee.

Please contact your Account Owner or BoardPro Support for more information on committees.
