Comment
I'm not happy about two aspects of this sentence really.

Firstly, the "ten-member" Committee, and secondly "today, Thursday". To me, that sounds very AE, but the customer (who has only recently suddenly started saying "am heutigen Dinsbumstag" in almost every press release issued!) wants BE. I would tend to just write "today" or "this Thursday", but of course both loose a little information.
