PCAOB Auditing in the Small Business Environment Forum Heads to Boston

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) is hosting a Forum on Auditing in the Small Business Environment in Boston, Mass., on Friday, September 8. The Forum offers registered accounting firms in the small business community the opportunity to learn more about the work of the Board, specifically the PCAOB inspections process and the impact of new auditing standards.

Hosted by Board Member Bill Gradison and staff from the offices of inspections, enforcement and standards-setting, the program will also feature a representative from a small registered public accounting firm that has gone through a PCAOB inspection. Participation is limited to auditors from smaller public accounting firms because they are most directly impacted by the Board’s oversight responsibilities. The goal of the format is to ensure that there is ample opportunity for discussion of PCAOB issues facing small business communities, between representatives of this sector and Board members and its staff.

The Forums are free, however pre-registration is required. The registration form is available online at www.pcaobus.org.

Additional Forums are planned for:

  • Philadelphia, Penn., On October 16
  • New York, New York, on November 6 and 7
  • Chicago, Ill., on December 7
