Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Committee"

The meaning of "Committee" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does The committee will be devoted to trade real estate time-shares. mean?
A: Not sure if you know what a time-share is but if you don't:
Time-shares are property (real estate) with a house or a condo that people buy part of. Like they can buy the use of it for a week, a month, etc. - they are only entitled to use it for that amount of time and the dates are set most of the time. Like you get the third week in July.
If your work will not let you take your vacation at that time then you can't go on vacation there. So they trade with other people with other dates for the time-share. Or sometimes they trade for location. Like someone has one in Las Vegas and someone else has one in Hawaii, they might trade for the time. They can also trade and change ownership.

In this sentence it sounds like they have setup a committee (a group of people) who will focus on making the time-share trades a priority. (probably for ownership but could be time or ownership trade depending).
Q: What does We no longer head committees. We head them up. mean?
A: yes “head” and “head up” mean the same.

The author is explaining that language adapts. So when a famous person for example uses a "new phrase" in this case "head up" instead of "head" other people begin to use it as well and it enters the language.
Q: What does The committee accepted the proposal in principle. mean?

So in conclusion the sentence means: The group of people elected to perform a service has accepted a suggestion through the rule of conduct.

Q: What is the difference between The welcome committee provides assistance to employees who have relocated. and The welcome committee provides assistance to employees who have been relocated. ?
A: I relocated to New York = I moved to New York. (implies it was you who moved on your own.)
ex: My company gave us the option to move to another office, so I relocated to New York.

I was relocated to New York = Someone/something made me move to New York.
ex: My company relocated me (= I was relocated by my company) to New York because the Los Angeles office was closing.


So in your sentence, employees who have relocated implies that they themselves did the moving. Employees who have been relocated means it was the company who relocated them. (Passive voice = the employees have been relocated by the company. Active = the company has relocated the employees. They have the same meaning)
