If you’re good with numbers, the Halton District School Board is hoping you’ll join their audit committee.

The Board is seeking a community member from Milton, Oakville, Burlington or Halton Hills with financial expertise and business knowledge to serve on its audit committee for a three-year term beginning April 1.

The audit committee is comprised of three trustees and two independent members drawn from the community at large. They meet at least three times a year, plus other meetings as required.

Meetings take place at the J.W. Singleton Education Centre beginning at 2 p.m., and selected meetings may also take place in a virtual format.

The primary role of the audit committee is to assist the board of trustees in fulfilling duties related to governance and oversight.

The candidate’s eligibility criteria includes:

  • Applicants must have sufficient accounting, senior financial management or other relevant business experience to understand public sector accounting and auditing standards
  • The applicant must not be a current employee or Officer of the Board or of any other district school board or school authority
  • The applicant must not have a parent, child or spouse currently employed by the Board

Candidates must submit a letter of interest and resume by 4 p.m. on Friday, March 24, to [email protected].
