Dear Women Corporate Directors - Washington DC Chapter members

We hope everyone is having a relaxing summer. We’re writing to update you on our first meeting for the fall.

Monday, October 16, 2023 - 6:30 PM Cosmos Club 2121 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington DC 20008

We will be joined by Erica Williams, Chair of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), and Todd Cranford, Associate Director, Office of Communications and Engagement, for a discussion on the PCAOB’s board agenda, rulemaking and a dialogue with our members. We hope this meeting will be an opportunity for our members to engage in dialogue with Erica and Todd to share input from an audit committee member’s perspective on how best to promote audit quality.

Erica was appointed as Chair of the PCAOB by the Securities and Exchange Commission in November 2021. She joined the PCAOB from Kirkland & Ellis where she was a litigation partner. Previously, she was a Special Assistant and Associate Counsel to President Obama. Before that, she spent 11 years with the SEC serving as Deputy Chief of Staff for three chairs. Erica earned a JD and BA from the University of Virginia. (19) Erica Williams | LinkedIn Erica Y. Williams | PCAOB (pcaobus.org)
