You can use committees and areas to group accounts for reporting purposes and inquiries. For instance, you may want to create a building committee so you can print reports that include only the accounts that the building committee needs to see.

Committees function identically to departments. An account can be assigned to a department, a committee, an area 1, or an area 2 but cannot be assigned to more than one of each. Departments, committees, and areas are not required.

Areas help you break down committees further. As an example of a committee, you can assign a Local Benevolence account to the Missions
Department, a Benevolence Committee and the Senior Pastor (Under Area 1). These assignments determine whether or not the Local Benevolence account prints on a report when Department, Committee, or Area 1 is selected.
