FEI ForwardThinking: Great Expectations, New Realities - What Board Members and Audit Committees Expect

1 CPE Credit

Senior-level financial executives have spent the past six months managing through turbulent times. Now, external stakeholders are judging how well those in the finance suite are reacting and what should be the benchmarks for success and failure.

The Financial Education and Research Foundation, in cooperation with Crowe, will hold live, in-depth Q&A discussions with key stakeholders -- including investors, standard setters and board members – to gauge how financial professionals are reacting to a completely new world.

The sessions include:

  • What Board Members and Audit Committees Expect : Leslie F. Seidman, member of the board of directors and chair of the audit committees of General Electric and Moody’s Corporation as well as past chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB).

This will be an interactive conversation – not a traditional webinar. Participants are encouraged to engage and will be able to submit their own questions prior or during the discussion.
