+1 to what Oscar said. If the Board, which has the ultimate authority, has failed to get the Treasurer to submit all the required financial documents, what makes you think that the Audit Committee will? I am tired of having ineffective discussions with people who don't want to cooperate. Abbas. PS -- For the record, I never volunteered to be part of the Audit Committee.

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 On Wed, Jul 25, 2012 at 10:52 AM, Branton Obwari <bruceobw...@gmail.com> wrote: Hi , matters of integrity ,n accountability are bound to rise ,in this kind of organisation i personally thought the issue we just heard on the mailing list would have been avoided if there was an audit unit as suggested earlier . i am available to volunteer on that capacity together with others.
