Kingston Unity – Board Sub Committees
The Board has established committees to consider certain specialist areas in more detail than what would be possible at Board meetings. Each committee operates within defined terms of reference. Minutes of meetings are formally recorded and reported to the Board by each Committee Chairman where necessary. Details of each committee can be found below.
The purpose of the Audit Committee is to assist the Board in exercising its responsibilities for compliance with statutory requirements and the integrity of the annual report and accounts. The Committee oversees the Society’s internal controls, risk management systems, whistleblowing provisions and effectiveness of the Internal Audit function. It also considers the overall remit of the Internal Audit function and the specific reviews to be undertaken by Internal Audit.
Internal Audit reports are received by the Committee and the findings are reviewed to ensure that corrective actions are appropriate and implemented on a timely basis. The Committee will make recommendations to the Board for it to put to the Members for their approval in the Annual General Meeting in relation to the appointment, re-appointment and removal of the External Auditor.
The Committee reports to the Board on its findings, identifying matters in respect of which the Committee considers action or improvement is required, and making recommendations as to the steps to be taken.
The full terms of reference for the committee can be found on the link below.
