Audit Committee

An audit committee is a committee of an organisation’s board of directors which is responsible for oversight of the financial reporting process, selection of the independent auditor, and receipt of audit results both internal and external.

A qualifying (cf. paragraph “Composition” below) audit committee is required for a U.S. publicly traded company to be listed on a stock exchange… The role of audit committees continues to evolve as a result of the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Many audit committees also have oversight of regulatory compliance and risk management activities.

Executive Committee

An executive committee is organized and delegated to represent the full board because
it’s not always practical for board members, especially large boards, to gather in-person to
make decisions and take some necessary action.
The executive committee is a standing committee, often functioning as a steering
committee and composed of senior-level executives and board officers, such as the
chair, the CEO, and a subset of officers and directors, to act on behalf of the board when
the entire board cannot meet.
