Upcoming Events

Webinar - 2019 Governmental GAAP Update

1:00-3:40 p.m. EST (2 CPE)

State and local governments and higher education institutions are charged with the responsibility of complying with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) annually issues a number of accounting pronouncements and other implementation guidance. Keeping up with these ever-changing rules can be challenging and time consuming.

Attend AGA West Michigan's quarterly webinar to learn the significant changes in 2019 including:

  • Recently issued GASB statements
  • Implementation guidance
  • New standards expected to be released in 2019
  • Ongoing projects

In addition, we'll address any and all of your GASB-related questions live.
