Committees

Appointments to Committees reflect the diversity of the SACUBO membership regarding gender, ethnic background, institution type, and geographic dispersion. Care is taken to ensure an appropriate balance of committee members.

Audit Committee

The Audit Committee is responsible for ensuring the financial reports of SACUBO are audited annually by an independent external accounting firm. The Audit Committee reviews the audit report submitted by the external accounting firm, evaluates the financial position of SACUBO, and presents the report, findings, and recommendations to the Board.

Best Practices Committee

The Best Practices Program showcases the best of college and university business officers’ efforts in creating better, more efficient, and customer friendly business practices. College and university business officers wishing to compete in the program submit a proposal in response to the call for proposals. The Best Practices Committee reviews proposals and selects the Best Practice Award finalists who will present their “best practices” at the SACUBO Annual Meeting.

Distinguished Service Committee

The SACUBO Distinguished Service Award was created to recognize an individual in the SACUBO region for distinguished service to higher education in the field of business and financial management. The Distinguished Service Committee solicits and reviews nominations for the Distinguished Service Award and recommends an honoree for the award.
