Some pointers to ensure the success of any committee or task force.

1. A snappy acronym. Check out Harvard, they have acronyms for everything.

2. Lots of off-topic conversation. Bring up the latest episode of Heroes.

3. Food with lots of sugar or caffeine, preferably both.

4. Encourage your committee members to assume nicknames or alter egos, then use these pseudonyms during staff meetings so that non-committee people get really confused.

5. Use brightly colored markers as a distraction.

don't forget cyanide capsules for your members in case of capture/interrogation/torture.

It's a library, we can't afford cyanide capsules. One of the committee members had to have an operation, we sent someone with him to the hospital to make sure he didn't talk.

True success is not managing to achieve or discuss anything that could be talked about. In polite society.
