We are happy to invite you to the next meeting of WCD Paris during which we will discuss thepractices of audit committees in France and in the worldfrom an international survey conducted by the Audit Committee Institute founded by KPMG.
In recent years, crisis episodes have helped to highlight the importance of governance arrangements to protect organizations from risks that threaten, reminding the economic players how good governance practices could be beneficial and reassuring.
Boards of directors and special committees are becoming increasingly concerned to promote management practices oriented towards the long term. In particular audit committees play a leading role in this field, through the major points of attention they select and the degree of questioning they retain.
French members of audit committees that participated in the study to be presented we have clearly identified what the key issues will be their function in the coming years. Four main themes will be addressed: risk supervision, supervision of auditors, the functioning of the committee and its effectiveness.
