Schools Committee

The Schools Committee is a joint NZSSRA/NZRA body separate from the NZSSRA Board of Directors. It was set up to carry out NZSSRA's daily administrative business and manage the general affairs of NZSSRA. The Schools Committee also carries out those functions of NZRA that relate to school rowing. For NZSSRA-specific functions of the Schools Committee see Article 11 of the constitution.
