The Committee to Plan Parties was started in Season 3 episode 10 "A Benihana Christmas" by Pam and Karen after Karen is removed from the Party planning Committee by Angela. They host a party called "A Margarita-Karaoke-Christmas!" thats starts at 2:45 in the break room with a fund of $201. Dwight orders them to cancel their party and to give him all their party materials and states that he will return them on January 4th. Then Jim interferes by stating that The Committee to Plan Parties is valid and can continue to plan their party. Phyllis also helps out Pam and Karen with their party briefly, much to the dismay of Angela. Their party ends up being much more successful and fun than Angela's. Pam and Karen both feel bad and agree to stop The Committee to Plan Parties.
