+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.
PS -- For the record, I never volunteered to be part of the Audit Committee.

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

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.
