REMINDER: REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR DEC. 2 ROUNDTABLE
FOR FASB PROPOSAL ON HEDGE ACCOUNTING
Norwalk, CT, October 18, 2016—Registration is open for
two upcoming public roundtable meetings addressing the Financial
Accounting Standards Board's (FASB) Proposed Accounting Standards Update
(ASU), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities.
The purpose of the roundtables is to provide an opportunity for those
who have submitted a comment letter on the Proposed ASU to discuss their
feedback with the FASB. The Board is seeking participation from
financial statement users, preparers, auditors, and others across all
industries. In order to participate, a comment letter must be submitted
by Friday, November 4, 2016.
Those interested in participating in one of the roundtables should register online by Friday, November 4, 2016. Nonparticipating observers should register in advance (seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis) by Friday, November 18, 2016.
There will be two sessions which will take place on Friday, December 2,
2016, at the FASB offices at 401 Merritt 7, Norwalk, CT 06856. Depending
on stakeholder feedback, the Board will be considering whether one of
the roundtables should focus more on nonfinancial risks. The meeting
will be audio webcast and archived on the FASB website for 30 days
following the meeting.
Session 1 time: 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. EST
