While board members play an important role in an organization’s business, the audit committee’s role of overseeing the financial reporting process is critical…and ever-expanding. The number and magnitude of financial reporting risks to be monitored continue to grow. The COVID-19 crisis also has fundamentally changed the world of work—and, in turn, affects many board responsibilities. Boards, and particularly audit committees, must consider how this unprecedented event affects their financial oversight responsibilities, especially regarding financial reporting.


Join RSM and Directors and Boards for a webcast in which Sara Lord, RSM’s chief auditor; Rick Condon, RSM’s professional practice leader; AND INSERT BOARD MEMBER INFO will ask the following questions of audit committee members:

  • How has the audit committee board role changed in recent years?
  • Are you providing financial reporting oversight with the appropriate rigor?
  • Do you have the requisite expertise to truly provide financial reporting oversight?
  • Do you and your committee members receive regular education regarding financial reporting oversight?
