Volunteer opportunity for Des Moines and SW Iowa CPAs

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Des Moines seeks volunteers to assist the Diocesan Finance Department in the performance of internal reviews for 81 parishes and 16 schools in Des Moines and southwest Iowa. The reviews are not intended to be audits, but rather a verification and testing of internal controls and the performance of limited substantive test work resulting in a report of recommendations. For more information and to volunteer, contact Christie Rice at crice@dmdiocese.org or 515-237-5002 by April 30.
