VCA Auditors are authorised to undertake audits of VCA plans and reports.
VCA managers in need of an audit may choose from the roster below. Or they may ask a local conservation expert to apply to be a VCA Auditor.
A prospective auditor needs to submit a letter of application and a CV. These documents need to include contact information, current employment details, academic qualifications, and a summary of relevant professional experience and expertise. The letter must be signed and dated. It also needs to include the following sentence: “I hereby request to be approved by the VCA Advisory Board as a VCA Auditor and to undertake audits responsibly and with integrity in support of recognising and encouraging area-based conservation.”
If you have questions or would like to submit an application, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
