Directors Quarterly: April 2013

Apr 02, 2013
From the Audit Committee Institute

In this inaugural issue of ACI's Directors Quarterly, we focus on the critical challenges and priorities shaping audit committee and board agendas in 2013, including insights from our recent Audit Committee Issues Conference.

Clearly, audit committees have a unique perspective on the risks facing the business–and their vantage point sheds important light for the entire board.

Feature articles in this issue include:

  • A financial reporting and regulatory update specifically for public company directors
  • An in-depth interview on the changing role of the audit committee chair
  • An article on maximizing internal audit

"The speed and magnitude of the changes taking place today are rendering past experience much less reliable as an indicator of future results," said Dennis T. Whalen, partner in charge and executive director of KPMG's Audit Committee Institute. "Like their companies' shareholders, directors are sharpening their focus on what's ahead; they're turning to management, auditors and others for a better view of risks and opportunities on the horizon and around the corner–which is why we've launched Directors Quarterly."
