Financial Accountability

Financial accountability and management are governed by the Asian Community Health Coalition's by-laws which, in turn, are designed to protect the interest of stakeholders. These are guided by a Board of Directors that meets regularly to resolve issues of accountability or management as these may arise. A financial statement report is prepared annually by an independent auditor and submitted to the Board and applicable state and Federal agencies.
