Having an Audit Committee is a good idea, however my question is, What are
its mandates? I mean like yes I want us to have one, but what happens when
they make recommendations incases of malpractice in the board?  I say this
because technically all the members have been some sort of auditors and
have been checking and asking for answers from the board especially as
regards to vary many decisions, financials included. So please let us lay
out the mandate of the committee  and there is nothing worse like
making recommendations that never get implemented like
most commissions and committees in Kenya.....my personal  2 cents

That Said, I know Abbas, Grace (who stepped down from the Chapter) and
Kosgei are the other volunteers, so I guess we have an audit Committee ready
