Nominees are being sought for the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board's standing advisory group.
The 12 members on the 30-member panel whose two-year terms expire Dec. 31 include Gail L. Hanson, deputy executive director of the $78.1 billion State of Wisconsin Investment Board, Madison; Margaret M. Foran, chief governance officer, vice president and corporate secretary, Prudential Financial; R. Harold Schroeder, director of relative value arbitration, Carlson Capital; and Lynn E. Turner, senior adviser and managing director, and former chief accountant of the SEC.
Members serve two-year terms and can be renominated, and the panel's size can change, said spokeswoman Lucy Harvey. In 2009, it had 33 members, in 2008, 36; and in 2007, 31 members.
Forms for nominations, including self-nominations, are at http://www.pcaob.org.
Nominations are due June 17, and appointments are expected to be announced at the end of October. The PCAOB hasn't decided how many nominees it will appoint to new terms, Ms. Harvey said. “The standing advisory group was created to be flexible,” she said.
The advisory group guides the PCAOB on auditing standards and related issues.
