The USPS® Planning Committee
3.86 The planning committee makes recommendations
in response to queries referred to it by
the Governing Board, by the Operating Committee
and, on its own initiative, makes recommendations
of proposed changes for the improved functioning
of USPS [Bylaw 5.7.5].
Time limitations at many Governing Board and
Operating Committee meetings prohibit discussions
to the depth that many subjects require.
These topics may be referred to the planning committee
for study and consideration. That committee
subsequently reports its recommendation back to
the referring body.
Resolutions from district conferences or USPS
departments that represent possible changes in
policy or procedure are generally referred to this
committee for study and report. Over a period of
years, the planning committee may restudy a
subject previously considered since it must keep
abreast of social and legal changes.
