The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board today announced it has extended the nomination period for its Investor Advisory Group for the 2012-2014 three-year term. The new deadline for submissions is Sept. 28, 2012.

Members of the IAG represent a broad spectrum of the investment community, as well as individuals who have a demonstrated history of commitment to investor protection.

Nominations, including self-nominations, are sought every three years, and may be submitted by any person or organization. The nomination forms are available at the links below.

Membership in the advisory group is personal to the member, and the duties and responsibilities of the member cannot be delegated to others. Members are subject to certain sections of the Board's Ethics Code, as provided in PCAOB Rule 3700, Advisory Groups.

The Board established the IAG in July 2009 as a forum for the investor community to provide it with views and advice on matters affecting investors and the work of the PCAOB. More information is available on the Investor Advisory Group page on the PCAOB website.
