What makes MAPI council meetings different?
Roundtable discussions: Rich dialogue on the issues you care about, moderated to keep discussions focused on the “so what”.
Peer to peer sharing: There are no talking heads. Almost all of the content is delivered by your peers at global manufacturers, sharing experiences candidly.
No death by PowerPoint: While our presenters deliver outstanding content, we schedule ample time for interaction and Q&A, so that you can dig deep on the topics that matter.
No pitches: Our council meetings aren’t sponsored, and there are no sales pitches. None.
Balance of strategy and utility: Our council meetings deliver great content around strategy and peer-tested frameworks for putting those strategies into action

The responsibilities of general counsel and the independent auditors often intersect and overlap, especially in areas such as the evaluation of contingent losses, ethics and compliance investigations and SEC compliance and reporting. However, with different perspectives and operational frameworks, an appreciation for the objectives of each party as well as a solid communication protocol is critical.
In this session we will examine common challenges to, and best practices for, developing a successful working relationship between general counsel and the lead audit engagement partner.
