The Audit Committee is charged with obtaining audits of Association accounts and financial records and reporting to the Directors. Audits shall normally be performed once annually, but at the discretion of the Committee Chairman or the Executive Committee, may be done more often. The annual audit traditionally has been performed, without charge, by the member state hosting the Spring Directors’ Meeting. The Audit Committee’s report is presented at that meeting. However, with the approval of the Executive Committee, the Audit Committee may pay for financial audits when deemed necessary or appropriate by other circumstances.
