"A Camel is a Horse Designed by a Committee." - Sir Alec Issigonis
I was told as I entered ministry, "You will never meet a committee that you like." I learned this over the years to be true. From a wife of another minister that argued with the staff that a certain movie was R rated (It was PG) to a Fellowship Committee member who bragged about how much he hated college educated people (In front of the Singles Minister, the Music Minister and myself - all with Masters degrees). Don't misunderstand me, I appointed teams of experts that got many things accomplished. I never worked on a committee of volunteers that had any expertise in the task they were assigned, much less any training in the job.
