The Audit Committee verifies the chapter's accounts and assets. The audit compares deposit slips, receipts, and checks with ledger entries for accuracy; verifies that all expenses were appropriate for the chapter and were charged to the correct account; and checks that the books balance and correspond to the chapter's bank statements. The audit committee should maintain an inventory and verify the whereabouts of equipment and software assets purchased for use by the chapter. The auditor may not be an active Administrative Council member.
