I am looking forward to serving on the AICPA Assurance Services Executive Committee (ASEC) Sustainability Assurance and Advisory Task Force. I will be attending my first meeting in June at the AICPA offices in NYC. The Task Force is charged with addressing member needs and opportunities as they relate to the reporting and assurance of sustainability-related information. This task force works in coordination with the Auditing Standards Board (ASB) Sustainability Task Force and the ASB Conflict Minerals Task Force. Both of these groups work on AICPA standards development, technical guidance and comment letters related to assurance on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions and Conflict Minerals, respectively.

In a future blog, I will talk about my experiences serving on this important task force.

Another ISOS Group GRI + GDP training is coming up June 1-3 in Chicago! This is will be a great opportunity to learn about the GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and the CDP reporting framework. Nancy Mancilla and I will be co-trainers for the GRI G4 two day session. After obtaining your certificate of attendance for the course, you will be eligible to take the GRI G4 Exam. If you want to read about my experience taking the exam, see my blog postStephen Donofrio and Nancy Mancilla will be conducting the CDP session.

What a great time to be in Chicago! Hope to see you there.
