Webinar: Tuning Up and Revitalizing Your Audit Committee Charter

The role of the audit committee is ever-evolving. In addition to assisting with reviews of financial reporting and audit preparation, committees are increasingly being tasked with enterprise risk assessment. From cybersecurity threats to the management of employee benefits, audit committees are looking for how organizations are assessing and managing their key risks. An evaluation of your organization’s audit committee practices helps ensure that your committee is prepared to fulfill its ever-changing role.

In this session, we will take a deep dive into audit committee charters, emerging best practices related to the activities of audit committees and provide some practical advice for managing meetings and interactions with the audit committee.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Identify emerging best practices within audit committees
  • Have a basis to compare your current charter to others
  • Describe tools and resources to improve your audit committee
  • Give examples of ideas for organizing and administering the audit committee
