Cancer society postpones AGM
27 September, 2014, 12:00 am
MEMBERS of the interim Trustees of Fiji Cancer Society have postponed their annual general meeting to a later date because audited reports are still unavailable.
Society’s interim Board of Trustees chairwoman Nazhat Shameem said the trustees met last Wednesday to discuss the ongoing audit and upcoming AGM, which was scheduled for a later date this month.
“The trustees have noted that there is still a delay in the audit because there had been accounts at branches operating since 2006 under FCS TIN, which had never been audited,” Ms Shameem said.
“It has been difficult for auditors, however, KPMG has advised that they are now in process of compiling the report and the report can be ready in two to three weeks as they need to consult with their Australian office.”
Ms Shameem said despite the difficult situation the society was faced with, it had not fallen short of trying its best to provide the best available care for cancer patients and their families.
Meanwhile, Bank of the South Pacific staff members stationed at its Suva Central branch yesterday were part of the Society’s Biggest Morning Tea function with all funds collected during the morning tea directed to the society’s coffers.
