Northwest Farm Credit Service's Board of Directors has an independent audit committee. To ensure independence and objectivity, no committee member can be an employee or officer of Northwest FCS. In addition, to ensure this committee has the expertise needed to carry out this very important board oversight responsibility, a member of this committee is the outside director who is appointed on the basis of their financial and audit experience. The director designated as the "financial expert" will chair this committee.
For additional information on the roles and responsibilities of this audit committee, contact the Senior Vice President of Internal Audit at 509-340-5561.
