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

A concise and readable account of the audit committee s roles and responsibilities

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act has changed the way all corporations now operate, regardless of size. In Audit Committee Essentials , goverance expert Curtis Verschoor explains with great detail and razor-sharp precision why internal control is so critical, emphasizing financial literacy, a requirement under Sarbanes-Oxley, as well as oversight of the financial reporting process and related controls, ethics and the internal and independent audits.

Written for seasoned professionals as well as newly assigned board members, Audit Committee Essentials is a vital tool in order to stay abreast of the rapidly changing governance requirements and responsibilities of audit committees.
"The purpose of this book, is to provide an introduction to the essentials of the extant statutes or recommended requirements on audit-committee formation and operation, and the specific roles and responsibilities that have been prescribed by legal authorities, market regulators, and professional bodies. In summary, this book provides a comprehensive and updated coverage of the statutory requirements, guidelines, and best-practice recommendations about audit committees duties, responsibilities, and operations, from the perspective of strengthening corporate governance. This book is written concisely without the use of jargon and legalese so it is easy to read and understand." ( The International Journal of Accounting , March 2010)
