Executive Committee

The Executive Committee is comprised of the Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary, and each member is elected by the board for a two-year term. This committee oversees the activities of all SPE committees and acts on behalf of the board when it is not in session. The Chair works closely with the Executive Director and directs the activities of all board committees. The Vice Chair advises the board in setting goals for the society, supervises long-term planning, and chairs the Steering Committee, which reviews current policies and programs in light of the society's changing needs. The Treasurer of SPE works on fundraising. The Secretary is responsible for taking the minutes of the board meetings. Members of the Executive Committee convene three times each year in March, August, and January.

Audit Committee

SPE's Audit Committee provides an oversight role. The Audit Committee may coordinate, monitor, and work closely with SPE's staff to prepare the organization for an independent audit. The Audit Committee also may participate in the decision to hire the auditor and should be responsible for evaluating the audit process and recommending whether or not to reengage the audit firm for subsequent audits. The Audit Committee is also the body that presents the auditors' findings to the Board of Directors, making sure that the full board understands any recommendations made by the auditors before formally accepting the audit report. Finally, the audit committee recommends changes in practices or reporting in order to adhere to general accounting principles and maintain industry "best practices."
