Posted on

RVS is seeking a public member to serve on its Audit Committee. The purpose of the audit committee is to assist the Board of Trustees in fulfilling its due diligence for the financial reporting process, the system of internal control over financial reporting, and the audit process.

The Audit Committee meets two times per year, with authority to convene additional meetings, as circumstances require. The next meeting is scheduled for June 14 from 2 to 4 p.m.

The committee is seeking:

One member of the business community, who is independent to the Division, has no relationship to the audit firm and preferably, who is financially literate.

Membership criteria:

Committee members should be well regarded in their communities and, as a group, have:

  • financial literacy, meaning the ability to read and understand complex financial statements and accounting issues;
  • independence from the Division, member and spouse cannot be Division employees;
  • no relationship to the Board Appointed External Auditors or potential audit firms;
  • a guarantee that their employment or involvement in other activities will not place them in a conflict of interest position;
  • active residence within the Division.

Terms of Reference for Audit Committee can be viewed at the RVS Website.

The audit committee will review and choose public members taking into account experience and background. Interviews may be conducted.

Interested parties should contact Steve Thomas, Director of Finance by March 22.
