Norwalk, CT, June 28, 2021—Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Chair Richard R. Jones today announced the appointment of two new members to the Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF).

The new members are:

“On behalf of the FASB, I want to thank Jeff Nickell for his exceptional service to the EITF,” added Ms. Salo. “His input helped the EITF improve financial reporting for those applying accounting standards.”
