GRACS Project Committees

The GRACS Executive Committee may form special Project Committees of GRACS to handle specific assignments (in areas other than the three standing committees).


The committee members are appointed by the GRACS Executive Committee.

Any person who is enrolled in a UT computer science graduate program may serve on GRACS committees.


  1. Make recommendations and handle tasks related to the assignment specified by the GRACS Executive Committee when the project committee is formed.
  2. Report to the GRACS Executive Committee at its meetings.
  3. Not spend (nor commit to spend) money without the Treasurer's involvement.


  • A project committee forms when appointed by the Executive Committee.
  • A project committee dissolves when it completes its task and makes its final report to the Executive Committee, or when the next Executive Committee takes office, whichever happens first.

Meetings and Quorum

  • Either a regular meeting schedule should be agreed or each meeting should be called with some notice.
  • Project committees don't have a pre-established meeting schedule, they can set their own.
  • The committee chair (if one is named) or any two members may call a meeting.
  • Post meeting times and places on the GRACS calendar (see communication)
  • More than half of the committee membership constitutes a quorum. (Committee business can be conducted only with a quorum.)
