“council” vs. “board”

What is the difference between “council” and “board”?


Sort by

"An organized body of administrators or investigators" (Board) vs "An assembly of persons called together for consultation, deliberation, or discussion." (Council) - Obvious :)

One is spelled c-o-u-n-c-i-l and the other is spelled b-o-a-r-d.

Seriously though, the answer probably depends on the circumstances. What some organization might label a board, another might call a council.
