Audit Committee Training - London

Wednesday, 8 Nov 2017, 13:00 - 16:30


All charities need to monitor their governance and risk. Some do this through their trustee body, and some through committees like “finance and general purposes”. Increasingly, charities are also establishing separate audit committees to help in their governance processes, but there is no established framework for them in the charity sector.

This course introduces the main functions of audit committees and discusses their role in charities. It is a combination of presented material and discussion time.

Course content

  • The role and composition of an audit committee
  • Guidance from the Charity regulators and other sectors
  • Key issues: assurance, risk and reporting
  • The effective audit committee

Don Bawtree - Partner, BDO LLP

Who should attend

*Please note - this course is for registered charities only.*

This course is delivered in association with BDO.
