Special Committees are temporary committees that have a definite purpose and are subject to the directives of the membership. A Special Committee remains in existence until the duties assigned to them are accomplished, unless discharged sooner, and it ceases to exist as soon as the Association receives its final report.
FINANCIAL AUDIT COMMITTEE
By the end of each school year, either an experienced auditor or Financial Audit committee (minimum 3 people) is nominated and approved by the Executive Board. These individuals are responsible for conducting the annual review of the CES PTA's financial statements and records and preparing a report and recommendations (if applicable). The financial review must be completed before each school year and presented to the Executive Board and membership.
