A committee is usually a small deliberative get-together, which is generally under the charge of another bigger deliberative assembly. It is derived from the Middle English word 'committee', trustee and also from the Anglo-Norman 'comité'. A committee may meet very often for a meeting or even on monthly or weekly basis. A committee that is smaller and also a part of a committee are called a subcommittee. A very usual example is the Executive Committee, which is formed with the help of board members of a particular organisation.

There are two types of committees one is the official committee and the other is the unofficial committee. The official committee is also referred to as Commission, Board, Council, Presidium, or Politburo, while the unofficial committee is seen as unappealing labels such as junta, camarilla or cabal.
