"Audit Committees in Action: The Latest Developments"

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

2:00 - 2:45 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. New audit report requirements, a focus on auditor attestations, ongoing implementation of revenue recognition & lease reporting obligations and other recent SEC, FASB & PCAOB guidance can also impact the audit committee/independent auditor dynamic. Learn how to navigate this minefield from those on the "front line."

Join these experts:

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

Among the topics of this program are:

  • Latest SEC, FASB & PCAOB rulemakings impacting the audit committee
  • Evolving pratices for audit committee charters, agendas and meetings
  • How the audit committee should manage its relationship with the independent auditor
