I'm looking for advice on how to handle this.  I have a members table.  And I have a Committees table.  A member may belong to one or more committees.

So I assume in the members table I need a committee ID field that stores the committee ID number that the member belongs to.  But what if they belong to more than one committee?  How can I handle the storage of multiple committee IDs?
