Cvent Transition Guide

Overview

Join us for a rundown of the latest news, updates and trends in accounting. The event will begin with FASB Board Member Gary R. Buesser, CFA, who will offer an overview of FASB pronouncements and their respective impacts, as well as explore the future plan and initiatives of FASB. Next, a discussion among accounting professionals will further examine the adoption of the pronouncements and recent trends.

Our experts will speak to the impacts of new accounting and audit standards—most specifically, companies’ financial statements, and the topics to which investors should pay close attention—and we will be joined by an SEC specialist who will offer guidance on compliance and cover the most prominent new developments in the related domain.
