Our Process Committee is endeavoring to do a community training on improving 
committee effectiveness.  It is my observation that many of our conflicts stem 
from ineffective committee functioning rather than interpersonal problems 
(which often gets scapegoated).  Does anyone know of any resources related to 
this topic?  We are interested in information regarding:  how to discern when a 
problem should be addressed by a committee (vs. individuals or the full 
community); how to run effective meetings; how to respond to concerns; role of 
convener; how to make good decisions.

Please do not suggest hiring a trainer; the trainer we have hired has suggested 
we try to hash this out ourselves.

Any suggestions/resources would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.  Melisa
