As the economies in Poland and the region become ever more diverse and sophisticated, audit committees face increasing challenges in helping listed companies to manage risk, maintain robust internal controls, and provide reliable financial reporting. The Audit Oversight Commission of Poland, in cooperation with the World Bank’s Centre for Financial Reporting Reform and the Polish Institute of Directors, is presenting this conference hosted by the Warsaw Stock Exchange to help audit committee members perform their functions more effectively, and to improve communication and cooperation between audit committees and auditors, regulators, and stakeholders.
This program builds upon the event held at the Warsaw Stock Exchange on the 10th of January, 2013, called The Audit Committee: A key link in the financial reporting and audit process. That program offered perspectives and insights on the audit committee’s roles and responsibilities. This program will focus more on the “nuts and bolts” of the audit committee’s work, offering information and tools to help audit committees do their jobs better and contribute even more to the growth of listed companies.
