FASB Webcast and Webinar Series

IN FOCUS: CPE Provider Forum

Date: Friday, March 15, 2019

Time: 12:30p.m.–2:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

Program Description: The FASB is hosting an online technical forum for commercial accounting continuing professional education (CPE) providers on March 15, 2019. The forum is open to stand-alone CPE providers whose primary business is to provide CPE, as well as individuals who provide CPE within their organization (for example, a CPA firm) or to their organization’s clients.

Speakers: James Kroeker (FASB Member and Vice Chairman), Jeffrey Mechanick (FASB Assistant Director-Nonpublic Entities), Elizabeth Gagnon (FASB Supervising Project Manager), and other FASB Staff.
The technical forum will allow CPE providers an opportunity to inquire about final and proposed accounting standards with Board members and FASB staff to assist in preparation of accounting and reporting courses. Topics are expected to include Revenue Recognition, Leases, Credit Losses, and Not-For-Profit activities including issues related to the implementation of newly effective ASUs, other recently issued ASUs, and select other ongoing projects.

Advanced Preparation Needed: A slide presentation will be provided. It is suggested that the participants become familiar with the topics that that will be discussed during the webcast including reading recent ASUs and prepare questions in advance to ask the FASB Board and staff during the webcast.

The webcast will also be archived, to provide those who teach your courses access to the topics discussed.

If you have any questions, comments, or further suggestions, please reach out to Elizabeth Gagnon at (203) 956-3477 or eagagnon@fasb.org.

We look forward to your participation.
