DATE: Jan. 7, 2011 
SPEAKER: Daniel L. Goelzer, Acting Chairman 
EVENT: Board Member Appointment 
LOCATION: Washington, DC 

I am very pleased that the SEC has appointed three outstanding individuals to the Board. I look forward to working with Jim Doty, Lew Ferguson, and Jay Hanson in continuing to carry out the Board's mission to protect investors and promote public confidence in audited financial reporting.

At the same time, I want to thank the retiring Board members, Bill Gradison and Charley Niemeier, for their immeasurable contributions as founding members of the Board and for their years of dedicated service. Investors owe them a debt of gratitude.
