Collaboration Governance
As defined in the bylaws, the basic governance structure of the CMB-S4 Collaboration is as follows. A Governing Board provides oversight to an Executive Team led by two equal co-Spokespersons. A number of Councils, Committees and Working Groups carry out necessary work to enable the overall science objectives of the Collaboration. These councils include the Science Council, Technical Council, Membership Committee, and Publication and Speakers Committee. The chairs of these councils and committees are ex officio members of the Executive Team.
