November 20th, 2019

Audit Committee – Public Members
Pembina Hills School Division

Pembina Hills School Division is requesting applications from members of the public to fill two (2) positions on the school division’s Audit Committee as public members.

The Division’s Audit Committee is comprised of elected school trustees and two public members. The Committee will be responsible for recommending external auditors to the Board, reviewing the annual financial statements and reporting to the Board, and attend to other matters as the Board may determine in the establishment of the Audit Committee.

Qualifications for the public members would include being independent of the school division and have no financial or personal interests with Pembina Hills School Division’s audit firm Shoemaker, Viney & Friesen. A background with financial literacy would be an asset.

Public members will be compensated for their time on the Audit Committee at the same rate at Trustees. The Audit Committee meets 2-4 times per year.

If you are interested in serving on the Audit Committee, please submit a letter of interest explaining why your qualifications and experience would add value to the Committee.  Forward your letter to the attention of:

David Garbutt, Superintendent of Schools
Email: David.Garbutt@pembinahills.ca

Deadline for applications to be received on or before January 6, 2020
