KPMG's Audit Committee Institute has announced a series of roundtables designed for members of public company audit committees in 20 US cities in late May through mid June. The roundtable series, "Changes and Challenges Driving the Audit Committee Agenda," will feature discussions on key issues affecting public company audit committees' oversight of financial reporting, compliance, and related risks. Roundtable discussion topics will include:
- Top Concerns for Audit Committees in 2011 - key insights from the 2011 Annual Audit Committee Issues Conference
- The New Disruptive Global Economy - considering the impact of geopolitical developments and other recent events on economic growth and the global business/risk environment
- IT Risk - oversight of IT risk and emerging technologies, including cloud computing, data privacy/security, and data governance
- Legal/Regulatory Compliance - an update on Dodd-Frank rulemaking, FCPA enforcement, and SEC activities. What are audit committees doing differently?
These roundtables will offer board members serving on their boards' audit committees the opportunity to discuss current and emerging audit committee issues with experts from KPMG. Participants may earn up to two CPE credits and are eligible for NACD credits for attending.
The June 9, 2011 roundtable in Boston, MA will focus exclusively on investment company audit committee issues. This industry-specific Audit Committee Roundtable session is designed for the mutual funds sector and will be held in Boston following the general Audit Committee Roundtable session.
