Raina Rose Tagle to Speak at Eastern Association of College and University Business Officers Annual Workshop

WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 23, 2016) – Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) is pleased to announce that Raina Rose Tagle, partner and leader of the firm’s higher education consulting and governance, risk, and compliance practices, will be speaking at the Eastern Association of College and University Business Officers (EACUBO) 2016 Annual Workshop on March 9.

Rose Tagle and co-presenter Michael L. Somich, Duke University’s executive director, Office of Audit, Risk & Compliance, will discuss successful approaches to establish and guide effective enterprise risk management (ERM) programs. The presentation will examine proven program structures, compare risk models and discuss realistic timelines for program implementation. Rose Tagle and Somich were selected because of their in-depth knowledge of and experience with ERM design, implementation and evaluation within higher education institutions.

“As universities face increasingly dynamic and complex environments, evolving ERM practices create value by not only identifying potential hazards, but also recognizing opportunities,” Rose Tagle said. “I look forward to facilitating a discussion with higher education leaders on how ERM can positively impact institutions’ future vitality.”

Rose Tagle joined Baker Tilly as a partner in 2006 and has more than 20 years of experience in providing consulting services to higher education institutions, not-for-profits and other highly regulated organizations. Rose Tagle leads the firm’s governance, risk and compliance services practice, delivering services in the areas of internal audit, financial and operational risk management, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, fraud investigation, technology risk and cybersecurity, and organizational governance.

In addition to participating in the program, Baker Tilly is also pleased to support the workshop by sponsoring an attendee break on Thursday, March 10.
