It is strongly suggested that the club’s financial records be audited annually. This audit should take place after October 1, after the fiscal year has ended and the year-end report has been prepared. Check with your Kiwanis club for the name of a reputable accountant. You may find that there is an accountant in the Kiwanis club who will perform the audit free or for a nominal charge. If there is not one in the club, it is still worth the club’s money to have it done. This is an area of club administration in which the Kiwanis and faculty advisors can be extremely helpful.
