"Audit Committees in Action: The Latest Developments"

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

2:00 - 3:00 pm, eastern [archive and transcript to follow]

As the burden on audit committees continues to grow, audit committees have been forced to change how they oversee, delegate and even how they meet. Internal control obligations and more frequent restatements can also impact the audit committee/independent auditor dynamic. Learn how to navigate this minefield from those on the "front line."

Join these experts:

  • Linda Griggs, Partner, Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP
  • Jay Hanson, Board Member, PCAOB
  • Stacy Ingram, Sr. Counsel - Corporate & Securities, The Home Depot
  • Bob Kueppers, Senior Partner, Global Regulatory & Professional Matters, Deloitte LLP

Among the topics of this program are:

  • What are the latest developments for audit committee charters, agendas and meetings
  • How should the audit committee manage its relationship with the independent auditor, including conducting an evaluation of the auditor
  • What issues should be considered when changing independent auditors, reporting a material weakness in internal controls and restating financials
  • When should audit committees hire their own experts - and what should be considered before hiring those experts
  • How should an audit committee interact with the internal auditor - and ensure management cooperates with the internal auditor
