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. The new revenue recognition reporting obligations and a host of new SEC, FASB & PCAOB requirements can also impact the audit committee/independent auditor dynamic. Learn how to navigate this minefield from those on the "front line."

Join these experts:

  • Josh Jones, Partner, EY
  • Consuelo Hitchcock, Principal, Deloitte LLP
  • Mike Scanlon, Partner, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP

Among the topics of this program are:

  • What are the latest SEC & PCAOB rulemakings impacting the audit committee
  • 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
  • How should an audit committee interact with the internal auditor - and ensure management cooperates with the internal auditor
