Best Practices: Audit Committee Seminar

This four hour CPE training seminar focuses on an overview of audit committee responsibilities and how to be an effective audit committee member. It will provide a basic understanding of best practices in each major fiduciary oversight area for audit committees.

If you are a director or member of an audit committee, or if you advise audit committees, this CPE program will help you understand the full impact of recent and pending legislation resulting from the economic crisis and what is expected of audit committees in the current environment.

The Audit Committee Seminar has been designed to meet the CPE education needs of senior officers, board and audit committee members and can be tailored for private presentation to your audit committee with industry examples. We have recently presented this program in the healthcare, banking, casino, retail, insurance and non-profit environments.
