Mandatory committees exist independently of the board because they are established by an association's governing documents (CC&Rs or bylaws). This kind of committee cannot be abolished by the board. However, unless the governing documents provide otherwise, its members can be replaced at will by the board. The most common example of a mandatory committee is the Architectural Committee.
Other Committees. See ad hoc committees, standing committees, and executive committees.
