Fall 2020 Webinar Series

Internal Audit, the Supervisory Committee, and External Audit:
The differences, similarities, and how they need to work
together for the benefit of the Credit Union

Supervisory Committee members and Internal Auditors have an important role to play in the annual financial statement audit cycle. From engaging external auditors, to reviewing the final report and holding an exit meeting, this critical project requires your time and effort. Your internal auditors also have an important role to play. Providing administrative support, setting up interviews, and being a first point of contact for external auditors puts a strain on your team during interim and final fieldwork. In this webinar, we will explain what Supervisory Committee members and Internal Auditors need to know going into financial audit season. We’ll also explore common issues that can come up over the course of the audit, and provide practical advice to make this process seamless and pain free.
