About the SEC Committee

Committee Action Plan

Who We Are

Society members who are auditors, consultants, chief financial officers or accountants with an interest in financial reporting and regulatory compliance matters that are relevant to issuers.

What We Do

The SEC Committee (the Committee) generally meets monthly to discuss current issues and developments affecting public companies.  To ensure proper coverage of relevant subject matters, the Committee is made up of the following subcommittees:
• SEC Enforcement Actions
• Responses to Proposals

At its meetings, Committee members will:
• Review proposed and final releases from the SEC, PCAOB, FASB, EITF, AICPA, IASB and FinRec;
• Determine if a Committee response to an SEC or PCAOB proposal is appropriate and designate individuals to respond or serve on a task force created to respond to such proposals;
• Discuss technical inquiries and other relevant SEC/PCAOB and FASB related matters.

Other functions of the Committee include:
• Authoring articles for publications in The CPA Journal and The Trusted Professional;
• Being available to members of the press for interviews on SEC and PCAOB related topics;
• Being available to answer technical inquiries from Society members relating to SEC rules and regulations, as well as PCAOB compliance matters.

Who Should Join

Society members who:
• Are registered with the PCAOB
• Practice before the SEC
• Want to share insights and best practices with their peers; and
• Want to actively participate in Committee meetings and Society activities.
