The Securities and Exchange Commission has unveiled the panelists scheduled to participate in the April 13 roundtable on internal controls reporting. The day-long session will feature six separate panels, with topics, including: first-year efforts; reporting to the public; planning and design; documentation and testing of internal control over financial reporting; and the use of judgment in communications and conclusions. Among those scheduled to participate are: Colleen Cunningham, of Financial Executives International; Rebecca McEnally, of the CFA Centre for Financial Market Integrity; Comptroller General David Walker; Edward E. Nusbaum, of Grant Thornton; Lynn E. Turner, of Glass, Lewis & Co.; James S. Turley, of Ernst & Young; Samuel A. DiPiazza, of PricewaterhouseCoopers; and John A. Thain, of the New York Stock Exchange. "The panels are comprised of highly qualified individuals that offer significant expertise and first-hand experience on these matters," said SEC Chairman William Donaldson in a statement. "[The roundtable] is an important part of the commission's overall efforts to study the initial implementation of the internal control reporting provisions."
