Praise for Audit Committee Essentials

"Audit Committee Essentials is an excellent and comprehensive resource, documented with key references and illustrated with real-life company examples for all types of commercial and nonprofit enterprises. Dr. Verschoor brings into focus the intertwined impact of risk management, internal controls, and ethics on oversight responsibilities for both the audit committee and the entire board of directors. From my personal perspective as an audit committee member and as a director of both profit and nonprofit entities, this book should be required reading for corporate management, boards of directors, and their committees."--George K. Gill, Chairman and CEO of PetAg, Inc.;Director and member of the Investment and Audit Committees of the United Methodist Foundation of Northern Illinois

"Maintaining the highest ethical standards is critical to the success of not-for-profits in today's world. Dr. Verschoor's book provides a practical, highly prescriptive approach to ensuring that governance processes meet the highest expectations of managers, employees, volunteers, contributors, and other stakeholders. I am very impressed with the readability of the book. It definitely raises one's awareness of the need for a thought-out plan that ensures strong financial and ethical credibility."--John S. Maxson, President and CEO Greater North Michigan Avenue Association, Chicago, Illinois
