Committees may have different functions and the type of work that each committee does would depend on the type of organization and its needs."

Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place to another, whether this be vocally (using voice), written (using printed or digital media such as books, magazines, websites or emails), visually (using logos, maps, charts or graphs) or non-verbally (using body language, gestures and the tone and pitch of voice). 

How well this information can be transmitted and received is a measure of how good our communication skills are.
