Dude, this is what the committee is for. If we can't contact them, bug them,
make sure they communicate with us, call them, ask that they be responsible
for their roles, then we have a problem.

I think you are using this as an excuse to make your point. The committee
*are* accountable to us. If you are not comfortable with contacting the
committee or working with them - as the rest of us are! - then I don't think
the problem is on the committee's side.

You have no reason to feel uncomfortable about contacting the committee, or
ensuring that they do your job. Even if you - like I have on a couple of
occasions this year - get an icy reception some of the time. :-)
