Our committees are an opportunity for you to focus on a particular area that our organization is involved in. They exclusively deal with grouped issues and goals. Not everyone feels comfortable talking to people on the street or getting their hands dirty with yard work, so the committees are a great way to pick the part of the organization that is right up your alley.
Audit Committee (AC)
Meet together and audit the books prior to the Fall and Spring meetings of the membership so that the Audit Report might be presented to the membership. The Audit Committee shall concern itself with records of receipts and dispersements of funds, inventory of real and domestic properties, and proper maintenance of standard keeping procedures.
PURPOSE: so that the Audit Report might be presented to the membership.
Ask your AC to develop a report for the Board on all the reporting and office procedural and policy needs and to develop training programs for new people to handle daily input and reporting needs for the accounting system. Ask them to develop a Collections Policy for Board approval. Ask the Audit Committee to develop some “key indicators” ratios or percentages from historical and current data to help gage the wellbeing of the Association, such as:
% of Maintenance Fees 90 days past due
% of Maintenance Fees more than 90 days past due
% of resident lot owners
% of reserves funded
Ratio of water meters to total lots
% of vacant lots to total lots
Number of liens filed
