- A response is devised and the subcommittee ratifies it.
- If it’s simple and cheap action is organised.
- If a quick decision is needed an email poll with the rest of the committee can be held.
- If it’s more complicated and agreement from the committee as a whole is required, a summary is prepared and forwarded to secretary.

- Item gets considered by committee at meeting. In most cases it will simply be rubber stamped.
- Any further action required is noted and delegated.
