"The Call to Action shows how some entities have successfully enhanced their audit committee disclosures without the need for new regulation or an expansion of the committee’s scope of work."
"I applaud the approach in the Call to Action as it is all about effective disclosure rather than just more disclosure that may not be truly beneficial to investors."
