    As a professional who performs highly specialized benefit plan audits it's crucial that you maintain a knowledge level that surpasses what is necessary to perform a financial statement audit. With so much at risk, you need to be confident in the services you and your team provide, especially as the DOL continues to escalate its oversight of audit quality.  Join us for our annual Employee Benefits Workshop.  Sessions include A&A Update for EBP Plans, Peer Review Insights, Participant Testing, and update directly from the Department of Labor.    

    The workshop is also available as a live-stream.  To register for the live-stream, click here.
