Briefly describe the CPAs role as a board member and any other expectations or comments: AAKP has not had a CPA on its board for approximately 6 years. The CPA would provide expertise in relation to the financial reporting of the organization and assist with overseeing the preparation of documents necessary for the audit. AAKP has a treasurer knowledgeable with finances and reporting, however, it is the Board's desire to bring additional financial expertise to ensure AAKP is on target with financial responsibilities.
