About this event

Have you ever needed a sounding board for your audit committee work? Are you wondering if your experiences are best practices? Join us for a peer discussion with corporate board audit committee members from within our Athena Alliance membership. Please bring with you a best practice from your audit committee work & think about what you would want to get out of participating in a peer group quarterly. Rules of engagement - we need to make this a safe place to speak. Chatham House rules; what is said in this group, stays in this group. Sessions are not recorded, not part of the library.
