Serving on a board’s audit committee is both rewarding and challenging. As an audit committee member, you are a guardian of your organization’s most precious asset — its reputation. Your primary role is to help the board maintain the organization’s overall integrity, financial credibility and long-term viability.
To expand your understanding of an audit committee’s purposes and functions, and your duties as a committee member, consult our Not-for-Profit Audit Committee Guidebook. Within its pages you’ll find guidance on accountability and independence, roles and duties, working within the organization and with external auditors, and monitoring responsibilities. You can also learn more about specific best practices; visit “Audit committee work within the not-for-profit organization.”
