The US Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and its oversight body, the Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF), will host a forum entitled High-Quality Global Accounting Standards: Issues and Implications for US Financial Reporting.

The event will take place Monday, 16 June 2008, at Baruch College in New York City. The purpose of the forum is for the FAF and the FASB to open a dialogue with constituents about whether and how to continue to move the United States toward high-quality global accounting standards. Panelists will include users of financial statements, representatives of small and large companies both public and private, auditors, regulators, educators, and others representing facets of the US economy that would be affected if there were a move from US GAAP to IFRSs. The Forum will also be webcast live on FASB's website. To register, or for more information, log on to www.fasb.org/forms/Convergence_forum.shtml. Click for  FASB News Release (PDF 28k).
