an experienced consultant, the agenda covers the current standards and what the
oversight role involves particularly the interface with risk management or when
a joint Audit and Risk Committee is in place. Simple compliance with standards

- Know what “effective” means in this context and
what information will be essential to be effective
- Understand the importance of the minutes and
what must be recorded to reflect the value that the Audit Committee adds.
- Consider what challenges you may receive from a
regulatory review and how to address these beforehand
- Know the current issues, including recent

the IIA and others
