Call for Candidates for the CCAF Board of Directors
Our Governance Committee is currently seeking candidates to join the volunteer Board of Directors.
CCAF-FCVI Inc. (formerly the Canadian Comprehensive Auditing Foundation), based in Ottawa, is a dynamic independent non-profit research and educational corporation founded in 1980. Its mission is to promote and strengthen public sector performance audit, oversight and accountability in Canada and abroad through research, education and knowledge sharing. The organization promotes innovation and excellence in these areas and is focused on the needs and interests of its members. Further information on CCAF-FCVI and its activities can be accessed on our website.
CCAF-FCVI is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors of respected professionals and thought leaders. Directors have links to our members and the communities we serve, and work together in a collegial manner to advise and oversee management's implementation of the CCAF-FCVI's strategic goals and achievement of its mission and vision, and build relationships within its member communities.
