Today's global credit crisis, combined with the changing regulatory climate, poses daunting new challenges for your audit committee. Not only are committee members responsible for providing accurate and transparent information to investors and other interested parties, but they also must ensure compliance with new accounting and financial regulatory rules and standards.
This intensive program prepares audit committee members and chief financial officers to operate effectively in a strained credit environment amid complex new accounting regulations. You will leave better equipped to identify and address the unique challenges—and the rare opportunities—arising from the current regulatory climate.
Immersed in an action-oriented curriculum, participants will explore how the changing charter of audit committees affects the agenda of committee leaders and members. You will leave with the latest strategies for strengthening financial expertise and responding to the demand for greater oversight.
While created for audit committee members on boards of large established companies, this leadership development program also benefits chief financial officers who work closely with the board's audit committees.
