The experience that I bring to the Audit Committee is that I have served on the committee for a total of four years.
What is your particular experience or interest that would make you an effective member of the Audit Committee of the Academy?
The experience that I bring to the Audit Committee is that I have served on the committee for a total of four years. I have participated in IRS audits of medical societies and learned from these experiences. I have an MBA in finance and have a very good understanding of the business of the Academy, and the risks that it faces. I work well with the accounting firm that conducts our annual audit, and with the Academy financial staff. As associate dean of Graduate Medical Education I managed a $60 million budget, and have gone through many audits successfully. I believe in the mission of the Academy and will strive to serve it well and protect it. Thank you for this opportunity.
