St. Thomas Aquinas Roman (STAR) Catholic School Division is looking for two members at large to sit on the Audit Committee.
The Audit Committee is a Committee of the Board of Trustees and consists of all trustees and, under s.142 of the Education Act, two members at large who are not trustees.
The Audit Committee assists the Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibility for reliable financial reporting, effective internal controls and compliance with legislation and regulatory requirements.
Audit Committee meetings are expected to consist of 2 half-day commitments, generally evenings, with the potential for additional meetings.
The preferred candidates for this Committee position will be supporters of Catholic education and, ideally, candidates will have accounting experience or an accounting designation. Terms of Reference for the Audit Committee may be viewed on the STAR Catholic website (Policy 8 – Committees of the Board - Item 8 - Audit Committee).
Compensation is provided in accordance with Board Policy 7, Appendix B – Trustee Honoraria and Expense Schedule. Both members at large will be required to adhere to the Code of Conduct/Honorariums – Public Committee Members (Policy 8 – Appendix B).
This is an excellent opportunity for the public to participate in the fiscal accountability and assurance of your local Catholic school board.
Applicants are invited to apply with a resume and letter detailing your interest and qualifications by July 26, 2020 to Edward Latka, Secretary-Treasurer by email at firstname.lastname@example.org; in person or mail at 4906 50 Avenue, Leduc, AB T9E 6W9.
