The GRC promotes good governance by encouraging democratic, cooperative processes and structures to facilitate fair and open decision making at all levels of HWFC.

The GRC meets monthly to review Board policies and procedures and actions of the Board, to make recommendations to the Board regarding HWFC policies and procedures, to consider alleged violations of HWFC Bylaws by the Board, Management, the Bylaws Panel or Membership and to determine what issues related to the GRC's duties and responsibilities should be brought to the attention of the Board and/or of the entire membership.  In addition, the GRC assists the Board Secretary in maintaining a current record of the Bylaws and of official HWFC policies.

The GRC has provided critical advice about how HWFC’s Bylaws should inform decisions that are made at all levels of governance.
