Audit Committee Seeking New Members
Looking for a great opportunity to further develop personally and professionally? The Audit Committee is seeking new members and will have three open positions for a four-year term beginning Jan. 1, 2023.
The Audit Committee was originally formed in 2000 to oversee the independent audit of the County's financial statements and provide an annual evaluation of the budget documents. Since that time, the committee's duties have expanded to include oversight of the County's Internal Audit function including approving the annual internal audit plan and evaluating the effectiveness of the internal audit function.
The committee is made up of seven total members including two County Commissioners. We are looking for a member of another governing body, a member of the accounting profession, and a member of the banking community. Find more information on the Audit Committee here.
Time commitment: Minimum of two meetings required per year but typically meets six to seven times a year, on Tuesdays from 9-11 a.m.
