Standing Committees may meet more frequently as needed at the discretion of the Chair of that Committee.  Additional Ad Hoc (temporary) committees are added as needed for certain tasks including, but not limited to; the HSOC Nominating Commitee, Grant Review Committee and Coordinated Assessment Committee.

On 5/21/2014 the HSOC Board approved a proposal to amend its current structure and include several new standing committees and changes in meeting frequency for existing committees. This requires an amendment to the HSOC ByLaws, which is subject to approval from the Board of Supervisors. To view a copy of the proposed structure Download the HSOC Restructuring Proposal here.
