Results of 2019 Audit
ACCP is not under any legal or regulatory requirement to have an audit of its annual financial statements, but it is considered a "best practice" by various regulatory organizations and the IRS to do so. Performing an annual audit assists the Board in fulfilling its fiduciary responsibilities to the organization by monitoring and evaluating ACCP's financial position. For many years ACCP has received a "clean" opinion from the auditors. This means they have found the financial statements to be free from material misstatements. This report serves to provide an outside expert's opinion on the society’s financial position, the results of operations and the identification of any material weaknesses in the system of internal controls. The audit found no findings of material weakness. Such consistent, positive results allows the Board to have confidence in financial operations of the society.
