The Executive Committee is the highest level in the decision making process in the Tripartite Forum. Final decisions are made at this level with consensus from all members. Decisions can overrule present policy, change future policy, initiate and provide input to legislative change if necessary. All Tripartite committees require approval from the Executive Committee in their formation, mandate and resolutions.
