Free Webinar on "Your Audit Committee's Ultimate Responsibility" on September 23 Hosted by Lord & Benoit

WORCESTER , MA--(Marketwire - September 14, 2010) -  Lord & Benoit, a global Sarbanes-Oxley research and consulting firm, is hosting a free one-hour seminar entitled "Your Audit Committee's Ultimate Responsibility" on Thursday, September 23 at 2:00 pm EDST. During this webinar, Bob Benoit, President & Director of SOX Research, and his team will provide a very helpful, constructive overview of audit committee oversight. 

"The word 'responsibility' means quality or state of moral, legal, or mental accountability, reliability and trustworthiness," says Benoit. "The Audit Committee of public filers has ultimate oversight responsibility for ensuring management's internal controls are documented and tested by a competent and objective party. Management has the primary responsibility for the effectiveness of an organization's internal control system. In the wake of corporate failures and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, great strides have been made in defining the role of the audit committee, enhancing member independence and ensuring that audit committees are active and involved." To register for this webinar, please visit www.Section404.org
