Audit Committees: A Guide for Directors, Management, and Consultants presents the history, responsibilities, and operation of audit committees. The Guide focuses primarily on publicly held companies, but also includes a short chapter on audit committees for not-for-profit and public sector entities.

The guide is written in a non-technical, active-voice, easy-to-read format. The book is useful for directors serving on audit committees, other members of the board of directors, CEOs, CFOs, legal in-house counsels, internal and external auditors, outside legal counsels, and other consultants to audit committees. It fills a “gap” in the existing literature in that it blends:

  • Observations based on real-world experiences from serving on audit committees
  • Expert knowledge of the standards of external and internal auditors
  • Knowledge of the latest requirements from the New York Stock Exchange, National Association of Securities Dealers/Nasdaq, American Stock Exchange, and the SEC, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

 

Audit Committees covers subjects rarely discussed, such as the process for terminating an external auditor. This Sixth Edition also features a free, companion CD-ROM containing workpapers, including checklists and document templates that can be put to immediate use.
