Farewell to Retiring IASB Members

Date recorded:

The IASB Chairman noted that three 'founder' Board members retired at the end of June and that this was the last time all of them would be in London. He paid individual tributes to the services to standard-setting over many years (both at the IASB and elsewhere) of Gilbert Gelard, Robert P Garnett and James J Leisenring. Bob Garnett remains in London on the staff of the IASB as Chairman of the IFRS Interpretations Committee.

This summary is based on notes taken by observers at the joint IASB-FASB meeting and should not be regarded as an official or final summary.

The IASB publishes summaries of the deliberations at Board meetings in its newsletter IASB Update. Past issues of IASB Update are available on IASB's Website. On Individual Project Pages on the IASB Website you will find links to observer notes and excerpts from IASB Update relating to that project.
