IASB'S Announcement of Its New Meeting Week Schedule

In September 2004 the Board will adopt a new schedule for its meetings designed to make better use of Board time. The revised schedule provides for greater interaction between Board members and the IASB staff as well as time for small group meetings with constituents. This new schedule will not be in effect for the October and November meetings (owing to the joint meeting with the FASB in October and the Standards Advisory Council meeting in November) but will be resumed in December.

There will be four half-day meetings: Tuesday 13:00-16:00; Wednesday and Thursday 13:00-18:00; and Friday 08:00-12:00. Holding meetings in the afternoons will enable FASB staff to participate in the Board's discussions on joint projects. Meeting early on Friday accommodates project teams in Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

In addition, a public 'educational session' with the Board will be held on Wednesday morning 0800-1200. This session will be used to provide background and education on difficult issues, to help the staff identify potential points of confusion or ideas for solutions. These sessions will consider issues to be discussed in subsequent months' meetings. No decisions will be made.

Tuesday and Thursday mornings are available for public meetings between the Board and outside groups. Should such meetings be scheduled, the details will be announced on the IASB's Website in the usual way.
