Learn how the GASB is defining who “controls” assets, which existing funds may no longer be reported as fiduciary activities, and which new funds may be included in the future.

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.

  • 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.
