Where do audit committees have opportunities to enhance disclosure?

  • United States Image

Nov 11, 2019

On November 11, 2019, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) released a blog on how the state of investor confidence in audit committees is strong in 2019, with a recent Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) survey finding that 81 percent of U.S. retail investors feel independent audit committees are effective in their investor protection role.

How can this foundation of confidence in audit committees be strengthened further? The CAQ believes that greater transparency about the audit committee’s role and responsibilities is key, as detailed in a new report by the CAQ and Audit Analytics on audit committee transparency.

Review the full blog on the NACD's website.
