Globalview Advisors sponsored The Center for Corporate Reporting and Governance’s (CCRG) 15th Annual SEC “Hot Topics” Conference held this year at the Irvine Marriott. This year’s conference provided updates directly from regulators at the SEC, Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB). It also featured expert panels on boardroom issues and legal and financial reporting hot buttons for businesses to monitor in 2016 and beyond. Topics included inside perspectives from the boardroom, audit committee challenges, shareholders activism, risk management and oversight, and emerging regulatory issues. The conference focus was of greatest interest to audit committee members, CFOs, auditors, accountants, lawyers, academics, financial professionals and those involved in the financial reporting process.

The CCRG is part of the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics at California State University, Fullerton and housed within the Department of Accounting. It was created in 2003 to address corporate reporting and governance issues facing companies and their auditors in the changing financial environment and is a premier resource for financial reporting and corporate governance in Orange County, California.
