Oversight

The Auditors of ELSA are divided into internal and external ones.

The Internal Auditors, two Auditors and one Vice Auditor, are elected by the supreme decision-making body of the Association, namely the Council, during its spring meeting for an annual term that starts on August 1st and ends with the approval by the Council of the final accounts they have audited. The Auditors examine the accounts of all revenue and expenditure of ELSA and the financial management of ELSA, according to the generally accepted auditing standards.
