The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board has announced two upcoming meetings -- one for its Standing Advisory Group in Washington, another a Philadelphia forum on auditing in the small business environment.   The advisory group, which is comprised of 31 individuals who advise the board on auditing and professional practice standards, will meet on Oct. 5 at the Army and Navy Club in Washington.   The group will discuss the board’s proposed standards-setting activities for 2007 and ways of measuring the success of the PCAOB. A panel discussion on the attributes of auditing in a smaller-firm environment and the attributes of auditing smaller issuers will also be held. The meeting is open to the public and will be Web cast on the board’s Web site,, where an agenda is available.   Separately, on Oct. 16, the board will host one of its regular forums for small business auditors. The program will be hosted by board member Kayla J. Gillan along with staff from the offices of inspections, enforcement and standards-setting, and will focus on educating smaller registered accounting firms about the board’s work.   The forum will be held at the Rittenhouse Hotel and be open to auditors from smaller registered public accounting firms, who can earn continuing professional education credits. The board plans to hold two more forums in New York City and Chicago.   Information on how to pre-register for the event, which is a requirement, is available by calling (202) 207-9061.
