Forums for audit and risk committee chairpersons

If you chair an audit and risk committee (or equivalent) in the public sector and would like to attend these sessions, please get in touch:

Save the dates! 9 February (local government), 23 February, 22 March, 19 April, 17 May, 14 June, 28 June, 19 July, 30 August, 27 September, 18 October, 29 November.

The Audit Committee Chairs forums are online events and open to audit and risk committee chairpersons in the public sector. We might, with the agreement of presenters, provide copies or recordings of presentations. The discussions are not made available publicly, to encourage free and frank sharing of challenges and solutions or approaches. 

The 2023 forums

We hosted online forums covering: 

  • the economy (an update from Dr Caralee McLiesh);
  • large-scale transformational change;
  • using whānau-centred approaches to improve well-being;
  • views from the Ombudsman;
  • the Three Waters reforms;
  • councils' long-term plans; and
  • governing climate risk.

What we covered in 2022

The forums last year were well attended and feedback about their usefulness was positive. We covered: 

  • internal and external audit (including the relationship with the auditor);
  • the Three waters reforms;
  • Māori/Crown relationships;
  • the Controller function and the Office of the Auditor-General's work programme;
  • performance reporting;
  • workplace bullying;
  • climate change reporting; and
  • cybersecurity.
