I'm confused as to the difference between a Committee, a Hub, and a Forum.

Hub – A “hub” is a generic term that we use to describe an area of the site. A hub can come in many forms: Committee Hub, Event Hub, Chapter Hub, Training Hub, etc… The Hub is the overall container for an area.

Committee – A Committee is a group that you can create inside of your chapter, in an effort to compartimentalize information. Committee’s are private by default, and only members of the committee can see information inside of them. For example, you may decide to make a committee called “Junior Branch” and one called “Adult Board,” or one for “2013 Village Planning.” Whenever you make a Committee, a hub is created for that committee.

Forum – this is a discussion area (Discussion Forum). A forum exists in every single hub. This is the place to have discussions with others inside the same hub. So for example, you have your default “chapter forum” where all chapter members can read/write forum posts. You also have private forums inside each committee, and a forum inside each event for everyone who is attending the event.
