Conference Call: Audit Committee Chairs
February 12, 2014
2:00–3:15 p.m. (ET)
The Independent Directors Council will host its next conference call for audit committee chairs of ICI member funds on Wednesday, February 12, 2014. The first portion of the call will feature a discussion with Martin F. Baumann, the PCAOB Chief Auditor and Director of Professional Standards. This presents an excellent opportunity to ask him to address any topics of particular interest to you and your audit committee/board. Afterward, we will have an informal and interactive discussion of general topics of interest among the participants. This part of the call will enable participants to raise questions, issues, or topics that would be helpful to discuss with other fund audit committee chairs.
The call will be facilitated by Garry Moody, audit committee chair of the AllianceBernstein Funds and former vice chairman and U.S. and global managing partner of Deloitte’s investment management services group.
