Audit Into Naacp Debt Not Finished

Associated Press

In her first board meeting as NAACP chairwoman, Myrle Evers-Williams said Saturday that an audit expected to detail how much the group was in debt won’t be released until June.

Even then, the public may not see it. Some members had hoped the report would be released Saturday, but the board has yet to decide whether to make it public, as EversWilliams has urged.

The accounting firm of Coopers & Lybrand has not completed the audit; members criticized in it sought more time to reply, said the NAACP’s general counsel, Dennis Hays.

“We want to give everybody an opportunity to respond,” Hays said.
