As a general rule of thumb, I am not a fan of committees. Call it controlling (if you will) but I like to do things my way. Why you ask? Because my way is usually the right way. Because I know how to do it. If you want me to do something, then chances are I know how to do it and if I don't know how to do it, I'll ask someone or figure out how to do it myself. Therefore, I find that most steering committees are nothing more than a complete compostable bunch of time.
I have created this chart to help if there is any confusion in a steering committee you plan on joining anytime soon.
