Registration is closed
Each year you get requests from your client’s auditor for information and to answer questions as they work through the audit.  You may be familiar with why they are performing an audit and why they are asking questions, but you may not understand the standards they must follow, the theory behind a retirement plan audit, and ways that you may make an audit easier for yourself and the auditor.  Chris will help attendees understand the standards auditors are bound by, the processes and procedures of a retirement plan audit, and what to look out for as you get information requests and questions from auditors.  

This meeting has been applied for 1 ASPPA and 1 non core JBEA credit.
