Description

Audit Committee (1‒3 vacancies) 

The Audit Committee oversees the integrity of the management control and information systems of The United Church of Canada.  

Mandate 

The Audit Committee is responsible for overseeing the United Church’s financial reporting, control, and audit functions. It also oversees the pension plan audit on behalf of the Pension Board. 

Membership 

The Audit Committee is made up of four to six members, one chairperson, one member from the General Council Executive or Finance Advisory Committee, and one member of the Pension Board. Members will have the technical skills required for this work while aiming to reflect the diversity of the United Church, with particular attention to its equity commitments. 

At this time, the committee is prioritizing the appointment of new members who―in addition to the needed financial and church competencies―would bring the perspectives of ministry personnel, regional councils outside of Ontario, or one or more of the identities noted below as a part of the church’s equity and full participation commitments.  

Member Skills and Experience 

Given the technical nature of the work, Audit Committee members will have experience in financial reporting and/or risk management. 

Expectations and Term 

The committee meets at least four times each year by video- or teleconference call. 

The term of this appointment is until the rise of the 45th General Council in July 2025, with the possibility of reappointment for a second three-year term.
