Fiscal Fitness — Dave Phippen, Chair of Finance and Audit Committee

I have had the pleasure of wearing many hats for the Almond Board of California (ABC) over many years. I have always enjoyed serving on various committees because it offers me an excellent way to be well informed and up-to-date on industry issues. I am constantly impressed with the caliber of industry volunteer talent and staff expertise that make up the collective brain trust of the ABC.

I currently hold the position of chairman, Finance and Audit Committee (F&AC). In this role, I share the responsibility with my fellow committee members of the fiscal oversight of the ABC’s operations. This involves scrutinizing the annual budget proposals and making budget recommendations to the Board of Directors for approval; reviewing the results of the annual fiscal audits and implementing procedural improvements; and continually evolving best practice as it applies to internal control policies.

I can gladly report to the California Almond community that the fiscal oversight the F&AC provides to the ABC is comprehensive and professional. My fellow committee members and I take our fiduciary responsibilities very seriously, and demand the highest of integrity in the ABC staff and auditors involved in fiscal matters. Nevertheless, like all good management, we are constantly challenging ourselves to perform better with a resolute commitment to continuous improvement.

Sincerely,
Dave Phippen, Chair
Finance and Audit Committee
