Highlights of the Event

Designed to educate and inform anyone involved in the financial reporting process, from CFOs to accountants, financial professionals to audit committee members, the CCRG has brought in a host of speakers from various industries.

Board members and a General Counsel from VIZIO, Cubic Corporation, and Western Digital will present on inside perspectives from the boardroom, sharing their insights on what enables a board to succeed or fail and how members can proactively support their own boards.

What does shareholder activism look like for your business? Keynote speaker Glenn Welling from Engaged Capital will discuss why financial representatives should be speaking out in the boardroom as activists to promote the success of their business.

SEC & PCAOB updates, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of the IPO, and developments in financial reporting will all be prominent focal points of the event catered to supporting financial professionals who seek to remain on the cutting edge of regulations and potential innovations in corporate reporting and governance.
