The free event is Thursday, Nov. 7, 11 a.m., in Room B-204 of the Triton College Student Center (B Building).

Attendees can learn about the ins and outs of life as an auditor and speak with professionals who have experienced the journey firsthand.

The CAQ is dedicated to enhancing investor confidence and public trust in the global capital markets by:

- Fostering high-quality performance by public company auditors.

- Convening and collaborating with other stakeholders to advance the discussion of critical issues requiring action and intervention.

- Advocating policies and standards that promote public company auditors’ objectivity, effectiveness and responsiveness to dynamic market conditions.
