How to Create a Committee

Within Member365 you have the flexibility to create and manage committees. Administrators can create committees by appointing members to reflect the role within the committee giving them titles specific to their tasks or positions within the Committee. You are also able to create a workspace that is specific to a committee allowing these small groups the ability to engage in discussions and upload files in a private forum. 

This article will guide you through creating a Committee.

There are two ways to create committees. 

1. Log in to your Member365 Administrator Dashboard.
