Board Committees

Executive Committee

The Executive Committee has been established by the Board of Trustees to exercise the powers and authority of the Board of Trustees, with limitations as set forth in its Charter, during the intervals between meetings of the Board of Trustees, when, based on the business needs of The Church Pension Fund and its affiliates, collectively the Church Pension Group, it is desirable for the Board of Trustees to meet but the convening of a special meeting of the Board of Trustees is not warranted, as determined by the Chair of the Board of Trustees

It is the general intention that all substantive matters in the ordinary course of business be brought before the full Board of Trustees for action, but the Board of Trustees recognizes the need for flexibility to act on substantive matters where action may be necessary between meetings of the Board of Trustees, which, in the opinion of the Chair of the Board of Trustees, should not be postponed until the next scheduled meeting of the Board of Trustees.
