PLGC Committees 2021-2023

Plantation Lakes Garden Club committees fall into two categories: Standing Committees that conduct essential business of the club and Special Committees that oversee any project or activity that is not considered essential -- which is not to say that they are unimportant.  Some of our special committees will likely become standing committees as our club grows and we have more members who bring additional skills and interests to our club.

Committee chairs are appointed by the President and serve at the pleasure of the President unless the chairmanship is defined in PLGC Bylaws as a collateral responsibility for one of the officers. Committee chairs may be assisted by a co-chair and members of their choice, unless specified in the bylaws.

  2. BYLAWS (PARLIAMENTARIAN) - This committee oversees the periodic review of Bylaws and Standing Rules and serves as an advisor to the club regarding matters of parliamentary procedure.
