RSM McGladrey Institute to host former SEC chief accountant Lynn Turner

The RSM McGladrey Institute of Accounting Education and Research at the University of Iowa is hosting Lynn Turner, former chief accountant of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Monday, Nov. 11 as part of its annual Speaker Series.

Joining Turner on the agenda will be Bruce Webb, a McGladrey & Pullen National Audit & Accounting partner located in Des Moines. Turner and Webb will address why recent accounting abuses happened, how to prevent their reoccurrence, and what the Sarbanes-Oxley Act means for the future of accounting.

The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Buchanan Auditorium (Room W10) of the John Pappajohn Business Administration Building at the corner of Clinton and Jefferson streets on the University of Iowa campus in Iowa City.

The RSM McGladrey Institute at the Henry B. Tippie College of Business was founded in 1984 with contributions from McGladrey & Pullen partners who are UI accounting graduates. The Institute sponsors accounting research, hosts annual public forums on contemporary accounting and auditing issues, provides undergraduate and graduate students access to professional research and educational materials, and is a resource for the media on accounting, auditing and stock market matters.
