Governance and Committees
The senior governing body of the CRRS is its Managing Committee. This body is primarily concerned with authorizing policy and receiving reports from the CRRS Executive, that is, the Director, Assistant to the Director, and the Chairs of its three sub-committees. In addition to the Executive, the Managing Committee includes ex-officio and advisory members who together broadly represent the interests of the academic community served by the CRRS. The committee meets once each term.
Managing Committee has four sub-committees, the Academic Programs, Library, Programs, and Publications committees. These sub-committees recommend policy to the Managing Committee for approval. They also plan and monitor activities according to their mandates. Their membership includes individuals with appropriate expertise in addition to representatives from the CRRS Executive. The sub-committees meet once each term.
The CRRS Executive and staff assume responsibility for implementing the plans of the sub-committees and managing the day to day life of the CRRS. To assist in these endeavors, the Director has formed a Technology Working Group. The Executive meets weekly.
