Boards and Committees

Date adopted:

We treat boards and committees as proper nouns so they should be capitalized.

Not: Accessibility Advisory committee, Mayo Housing Advisory board
But: Accessibility Advisory Committee, Mayo Housing Advisory Board

Once you have used the full name, avoid then referring to the board or committee by its acronym. Instead, just write “the board” or “the committee.”
